Abstract: This paper proposes two hybrid grey-based short-term wind power prediction techniques: GM(1,1)-ARMA and GM(1,1)-NARnet. These techniques are combined with ARMA models and nonlinear autoregressive neural network (NARnet) models, respectively. The efficiency of these algorithms is examined using a recorded wind power dataset. The performance of these predictors is compared with classical ARMA models as well as the traditional grey model GM(1,1). Unlike the classical predictors, the proposed hybrid algorithms are not affected by the inherent uncertainty in the wind power. Therefore, the results obtained using the proposed hybrid algorithms outperform those obtained using classical predictors. In contrast to the GM(1,1)-ARMA model, the GM(1,1)-NARnet model utilises the nonlinear components of wind power in the forecasting procedure. Consequently, the obtained results from the GM(1,1)-NARnet outperform those obtained by the GM(1,1)-ARMA.
