Cascading Potential Power for Performance

The cascading potential power for performance (PCP,performance) is used to estimate power values for performance calculations. The PCP,performance ignores the values of reference turbines in the potential power order and only uses learned power curve values.

Technology

Wind

Remarks

Important to understand the following variables:

Equation

None

Inputs

The platform ignores all signals related to reference turbines. Depending on the turbine configuration and potential power order you can use:

Usage Example

In this example, we have two turbines Backen 1 and Backen 2. The potential power order of Backen 1 uses as first value reference turbines. The primary reference turbine of Backen1 is Backen 2. Therefore, if there is power data in Backen 2, the cascading potential power will use this reference turbine to estimate the cascading potential power. We can observe in Figure 1 and Figure 2 that the cascading potential power (PCP) and the Potential power primary reference turbines of Backen 1 = 385 057.06 W and that this value corresponds to the power produced by Backen 2 as shown in Figure 2.

In the case of cascading potential power for performance, the system will ignore the values of the reference turbines. It will take into consideration the default power curve values to estimate the cascading power to performance. We can observe in Figure 1 that the cascading potential power for performance and the potential power default PC = 604 332.90 W. This value will then be used to estimate the performance index and lost production to performance instead of the PCP of 385 057.06 W.
