The nonlinear autoregressive network with exogenous input (NARX) is used to perform hourly solar irradiation and wind speed forecasting, according to a multi-step ahead approach. Temperature has been considered as the exogenous variable. The NARX topology selection is supported by a combined use of two techniques: (1) a genetic algorithm (GA)-based optimization technique and (2) a method that determines the optimal network architecture by pruning (optimal brain surgeon (OBS) strategy). The considered variables are observed at hourly scale in a seven year dataset and the forecasting is done for several time horizons in the range from 8 to 24 h ahead.
