Equivalent Full Load Hours (Turbine)

Equivalent Full Load Hours shows how long it would have taken to produce the amount actually produced if, instead of reality, the asset had run at full capacity.

It is a requirement to report on this KPI in the Spanish market.

Since the device resolution is constant for a device, this signal is proportional to Capacity Factor.
