WRF-Solar is used in both the NESI and DICast systems.
The DICast system blends the output of NWP models, both WRF-Solar output as well as that from publicly available models, including NOAA's High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR), the North American Mesoscale Forecast System (NAM), the Global Forecast System (GFS), and the Canadian Global Environmental Multiscale Model (GEM) for this project.
Several baselines are available for this evaluation, including persistence with knowledge of sky conditions and solar zenith angle (labeled "smart persistence") for nowcast components and publicly available NWP models for both the nowcast and DICast components.
In addition to WRF-Solar, irradiance forecasts from other high-resolution, regional, and global NWP models are blended and tuned via the Dynamic Integrated foreCast (DICast) system, producing a more accurate irradiance forecast on average than any component model for each lead time (Mahoney et al.
These nowcast systems are blended seamlessly with the Nowcast blender, which in turn is blended with the DICast output to produce irradiance forecasts.
Including the boule, "about one thousand posts had to be filled year in and year out from among citizens aged at least thirty" in a citizenry of "between thirty or forty thousand or so above the age of eighteen." In addition, some six thousand served as dicasts
