Abstract

With a massive increase of wind power, the prediction of wind power is becoming increasingly important. The algorithm of Random forests has many advantages such as less adjustable parameters, higher precision of prediction and better generalization ability. This algorithm has been widely applied in numerous fields such as medical science, management and economics. However there is no application in short-term wind power prediction yet. In this paper, the random forest algorithm will be applied to the short-term wind power prediction. The random forest regression model is established. The powers of a wind farm are predicted. The effectiveness of random forest regression algorithm adopted is verified in wind power prediction.
