FlexShape Solar Predictor

September 7, 2019

FlexShape Solar Predictor is a Web-based tool for predicting photo-voltaic (PV) supply with minimal user configuration. Essentially, the user only needs to specify a nominal PV installation power and pick a location on a map (or provide LAT/LONG coordinates) and then the predictor will start predicting PV production for the next 5 days in real-time (see Figure).


The predictions are automatically updated every hour. In case of prediction errors, the user can interactively correct values in the Web-based GUI. The system thus automatically updates predictions and learns the PV installation specifics though this iterative process.
