Wind forecasting is the estimated power expected (day head or hour ahead) to be generated from a wind turbine generator or a set of wind turbine generators based on the wind weather prediction. As per CERC RRF Mechanism 2010 order dated 09.7.2013 every wind generator needs to forecast their wind power generation on day ahead basis up to an accuracy of 70% for which Manikaran Analytics Limited will act as Forecast Service Provider.
After forecasting is done, the schedules are prepared considering the availability of turbines for all 96 time blocks. These schedules has to be submit to SLDC one day ahead of the generation for which Manikaran Analytics Limited will act as Coordinating Agency. We will submit the schedules to SLDC for each 15 minute time block on day ahead basis.
As per CERC RRF regulations 8(eight) revisions for each schedule have been allowed for every 24 hours for which we will send the revisions as per changes in wind generation (SCADA data) on behalf of the all the wind generators (connected to a single pooling station) to SLDC. We shall submit all the revised schedules at least 1 ½ hours ahead (6 time blocks) and also adhere to State wise accepted Scheduling practices.
Where any wind energy generator fails to comply with the provision of mandatory scheduling, it shall be liable for penalty as may be decided by the appropriate Commission under section 142 of the Act.
You must be connected to a pooling station of collective capacity of 10 MW and above (wind generator) and 5 MW & above (Solar Generators), to voltage level 33 kV and above and the substation (pooling station) commissioning date should be on or after 03.05.2010.
Yes if you are connected to a pooling station meeting the RRF criteria then forecasting is compulsory for all turbines connected to that particular pooling station.
Yes you have the provision to choose different forecaster but you have to choose a single Coordinating Agency for a single pooling station. If you select us as your Wind Forecaster and Coordinating Agency, it will yield the best results for you.
No UI is applicable on solar generators.
