Short summary
Ground-based whole-sky cameras are now extensively used for the localized monitoring of clouds. In this paper, we derive a model for estimating solar irradiance using the pictures taken by those imagers. Unlike pyranometers, these sky images contain information about cloud coverage and can be used to derive cloud movement. An accurate estimation of solar irradiance using solely those images is thus a first step towards short-term solar energy generation forecasting.
