Available Capacity for Production (Turbine)

This signal shows how much Power a given turbine is capable of producing, assuming ideal wind conditions are present, at the given time. If the turbine is operational, it will be presented as being able to produce at the maximum of its effective power curve. If the turbine is non-operational, it will be represented as being unable to produce.

This signal differs from the Potential Power Turbine signal in a key aspect. It does not take actual wind conditions into account but instead assumes ideal wind conditions.

A common use case for this signal is to provide production-availability data required by a power off-taker or a production-forecasting service.

The two key inputs to this calculation are:

  • Time-based system availability

  • Maximum power value from the conditional power curve (MPC)

Technology

Wind

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.
