25 Mar State-of-the-art Methodologies

This study focuses on the assessment of surface solar radiation (SSR) based on operational Neural Network (NN) and Multi-Regression Function (MRF) modelling techniques that produce instantaneous (in less than one minute) outputs. Using real-time cloud and aerosol optical properties inputs from the Spinning Enhanced Visible...
