The Cloud Prediction Technology, showcased at the solar farm is designed to smooth out power generation from the facility in tandem with a battery system.
In the case of the Karratha Solar Farm the system has enabled the battery capacity to be significantly reduced. It tracks cloud movements and predicts when they will block the sun’s energy from hitting the panels and cause a sudden drop in the power output.
The system avoids this disruption by gradually reducing electricity output, allowing the solar farm to meet its obligations to the grid. It has saved more than 20% in battery storage, significantly reducing construction cost and resource consumption.
