Power curve measurements
The power curve, defining the expected performance of the wind turbines, is specified in the contract between the developer/owner and the turbine manufacturer. If the developer/owner wishes to control whether the turbines produce according to the specified power curve, power curve measurements should be carried out according to the guidelines defined in the international standard "IEC 61400-12-1 Power performance measurements of electricity producing wind turbines”. This requires the measurement of the wind conditions and of the produced power.
Kjeller Vindteknikk has the competence to carry out the wind measurements required in such a study, as well as the data analysis. However, the measurement of the produced power is not within our services, and is therefore conducted in collaboration with an accredited partner.
