One Minute TMY Data Australia

One-Minute Typical Meteorological Year Data

The Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) dataset available on www.marcoernst.net is a derivative based on the Australian Bureau of Meteorology One Minute Solar and Weather data (BOM data). The BOM data was processed using the procedure published in M. Ernst and J. Gooday, “Methodology for Generating One Minute Resolution Typical Meteorological Year Data for Accurate Photovoltaic Energy Yield Modelling”, Solar Energy 189, 299–306 (2019). Please cite this publication if you are using this TMY dataset.

Free access to the publication is available until 17th September under: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1ZTib,tRdAUUQ
