POWER PERFORMANCE TESTING
Scans of a document by the International Energy Agency in 1990. This
prescription for performance testing of wind turbines was conceived in
1982-3 and the 1990 document is substatially the same with some small refinements
which I have mostly excluded to save space. there is a similar standard
test procedure by the AWEA 1983 which I could scan but it's very similar.
Averaging interval is 30-90 seconds in the AWEA doc, and the anemometer
should be 1.5 - 6 rotor diameters upwind of the rotor.
I am probably breaking all sorts of copyright rules by putting this
stuff on my site. Please let me know and I shall remove it!
Seems a good idea though. These docs were given to me for nothing
and I wish to pass them on in the same spirit.
That's it folks. If you insist, I can scan more but the rest
of the book is relatively dull.
