This technology is already operating successfully and the company is beginning to generate a disruptive forecasting model in the Chilean electricity market.
EnorChile developed two predictive models for solar and wind generation, which are based on multiple information variables that feed algorithms based on artificial intelligence, which also improve as they obtain more data and increase their accuracy.
Miguel Salazar, Head of the Commercial Area of EnorChile, explained that “wind is very difficult to predict, so we developed models that, with the incorporation of artificial intelligence, are able to better project its behavior. We are the first 100% Chilean company with this level of development and working with this type of systems, which makes us very happy”.
This is in addition to the solar generation forecast, allowing companies to rely on local suppliers, who know the requirements of the national market, especially those of the National Electric Coordinator (CEN).
“We want our Control Center customers, which exceed 2,600 MW in installed capacity, to have the possibility of acquiring a complete service that meets all the requirements of the CEN. We have an excellent team, which is always at the forefront of technology and thanks to them and their hard work we are able to obtain this type of products of such a high level”, emphasized the Head of the Commercial Area of EnorChile.
One of the great challenges for the electricity industry to achieve a greater penetration of renewable energies, in the opinion of Miguel Salazar, is to accurately forecast the load-taking ramps of solar and wind power plants, “we are sure that developments based on artificial intelligence are fundamental to achieve the increase of renewable energy in the system, therefore we are focused on improving our generation prediction systems”, said the executive.
