EDF R&D offers a PhD position on ensemble forecasting of solar
radiation, with the objective to better forecast EDF photovoltaic power
generation.

Ensembles of meteorological simulations will be studied (Météo France,
ECMWF) and generated (WRF). These simulations will be aggregated in
order produce a single, improved forecast. The aggregation will involve
past observations, especially satellite data (Heliosat) that will be
assimilated in the process. Also the forecating system will carry out
uncertainty quantification, since in the context of photovoltaic power
generation, the uncertainties are almost as important as the forecasts
themselves.
