Time Series Dataset: Solar EnergyΒΆ

We download the time series data from this link.

NREL's Solar Power Data for Integration Studies are synthetic solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant data points for the United States representing the year 2006.

When we downloaded Alabama on 2022-11-05, and loaded Actual_30.45_-88.25_2006_UPV_70MW_5_Min.csv as an example. We found a lot of 0 entries (which is expected as the will be no power during dark nights).

Power is Zero Number of Records
False 57868
True 47252

The dataset contains multiple files with each file containing a time series with a time step of 5 minutes (naming convention explained here).
