Title: Comparing the Value of Improved Variable Renewable Energy Forecasting Accuracy in South African and United States Power Systems: Preprint

Abstract

The value associated with an improved VRE forecast in has been quantified in this research. The value of improved VRE forecasts can increase with increasing VRE penetration levels with the range of this value becoming wider at increasing penetration levels. This value also saturates with high levels of improved VRE forecasts as there is relatively lower impact of improving VRE forecasts further. This paper discusses how the improvement of variable renewable energy (VRE) forecasting could impact the South African power system and a United States power system.
