SubathraAbstractRandom forests estimates (RFE) based machine learning algorithm is proposed for forecasting the three years ahead solar irradiance. Accordingly, the corresponding degradation rate (DR) influenced energy potentials are evaluated. Here, the DR of amorphous silicon (a-Si) PV system is estimated based on the simulated performance ratios with historical weather data. Prediction of energy potentials is helpful in decision making on improving the solar power project implementations in selected tr...
