Performance Analysis and Validation of Modified Singular Spectrum Analysis based on Simulation Torrential Rainfall Data

Shazlyn Milleana Shaharudin, Norhaiza Ahmad, Nur Syarafina Mohamed, Nazrina Aziz


A popular method for time series analysis to extract the components of noise and trend from the time series data is called the singular spectrum analysis (SSA). However, the drawback of SSA is its problem in determining the appropriate window length, L for certain data set in confirming patent separation of the components of trend and noise. Another issue that crops up when using SSA is that, over time, the sum of day-to-day rainfall becomes nearly comparable. In this case, disjoints sets of singular values and distinctive series components could essentially be intermixed, resulting in poor separability between trend and noise components. The introduction of modified SSA is to mitigate the problems efficiently. The performance of modified SSA is measured by using w-correlation and RMSE based on simulated data. These results show that the parameter L = T/5 was suitable to use in short time series rainfall data. It can be proved by the plot of the extracted trend for modified SSA that appears to conform to the original data configuration for time series rainfall however there is the omission of components of noise predominantly for L = T/5 in detecting the uncharacteristically heavy downpour which could potentially initiate the occurrence of torrential rainfall. In addition, the result shows that average RMSE for reconstructed time series components of modified SSA is much smaller than SSA for each L
