After then on rapid miner processes, interesting elements were selected (Temperature, PV input voltage, PV charging current, PV power, solar month, moon month, time period number, and week day).
In case of selecting attributes: moon month period, solar month period, temperature, PVpower (class label), and PVChargingCurrent, some knowledge inferred from decision tree was such as: most range values of PVPower matched the same range value of PVChargingCurrent attribute which means positive relationship, solar month period appeared in the tree but moon month period did not and that means solar month period has more effect on PVChargingCurrent than moon, also we find in two cases that third part of solar month causes a degradation in generated power despite of high charging current.
The solar month idea was born essentially out of an April 28 meeting in Bethesda, Md., between U.S.
Further restricting the time available for International Solar Month is the fact that Solar Max may be destroyed es early as 1990, as the result of reentering Earth's atmosphere.
