Potential Power Manufacturer Power Curve

This signal shows how much power a wind turbine should theoretically be able to output based on the manufacturer-provided power curve. It is calculated using the wind speed from the turbine’s nacelle anemometer to do a look-up on the manufacturer power curve.

Since wind speed can take many values not specified in the manufacturer power curve, the two best fitting power values around the wind speed are used for a linear interpolation. For example, for a power curve with wind speed increments of 0.5, a look-up on 7.1 will be interpolated using the provided values for 7.0 and 7.5.
