Available Capacity for Production (Planned) (Turbine)

This signal shows how much power a given turbine is capable of producing, assuming that ideal wind conditions are present and the turbine is available, at the given time. The turbine’s availability is purely dependent on the planned downtimes (managed in the Greenbyte Platform). This means that the turbine is considered to be available except for the periods of planned downtimes - when it is considered to be unavailable. When available, it will be presented as being able to produce at the maximum of its effective power curve. In periods of planned downtimes, it will be presented as being unable to produce.

The two key inputs to this calculation are:

The Time-based System Availability (Planned) is available also for future intervals. This means that the point of downtimes is planned for upcoming repairs, maintenance, or other reasons. This also means that the Available Capacity for Production (Planned) calculation is also available for future intervals. The information provided by this signal is often needed by Electricity Trading Departments so that they know what to expect and, if needed, buy energy from elsewhere to meet the demand.

Remarks

For accuracy reasons in this calculation, we are considering conditional power curves. In case a power curve value is not available, for example, at a given point in time, data will not be available. This would result in a gap in the graph on the UI. This calculation is also available for time intervals in the future.
