Wind farm performance
MetadataShow full item record
Performance of the wind turbine in the wind farm has been analyzed using IEC61400-12-1 wind turbine power measurement standard. Ten minutes averaged wind data was acquired from Windcube v2 LIDAR over the period of twelve months and compared with the 10 years data of the weather station to do the wind resource analysis at the wind farm.This study estimates the efficiency of one of the wind turbines located in the wind farm by comparing the wind power potential at the wind farm with the actual power production of the wind turbine. Power curve of that wind turbine was also established by monitoring the output of the wind turbine with the help of a camera programmed to take pictures every minute. This data was averaged so that power curve is based on the ten minutes averaged data.
