Power Curve Measurement

How does the turbine perform in different types of wind?  The answer to this important question is crucial for your investment, because a turbine that fails to meet forecasts produces returns below your expectations. The performance, in addition to the loads, sound and network properties, is also fundamental for the certification of a wind turbine. Our clients receive all the necessary measurements on request from one source.

The relevant standards IEC 61400-12-1 and IEC 61400-12-2 have been very actively shaped by WindGuard. Additionally, we make special evaluations far beyond the standard, for example, for wind shear or turbulence behaviour.
