Improving accuracy of wind power prediction is important to maintain power system stability. However, wind power prediction is difficult due to randomness and high volatility characteristics. This study applies a hybrid algorithm that combines ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EEMD) and support vector regression (SVR) to develop a prediction model for wind power prediction. Ensemble empirical mode decomposition is employed to decompose original data into several Intrinsic Mode Functions (IMF). Finally, a prediction model using support vector regression is built for each IMF individually, and the prediction result of all IMFs is combined to obtain an aggregated output of wind power Numerical testing demonstrated that the proposed method can accurately predict the wind power in Belgian.
