Differences in Densities affecting the Estimation


Recommended Posts

The wind turbine data sheets do not have the density used for the power curves. So I presumed it to be 1.225kg/m3 as most turbines data sheets are estimated using that density. However, the density of my site is 1.17kg/m3. WAsP gives error when I use two different densities. How do we estimate AEP for 1.17kg/m3.

Changing the WTG density to 1.17 is an option. But that power curves were not estimated at that density. So I am kind of lost here. I am worried about the errors in estimation.

Any methods to solve this?
