How can you improve your power curve?

Understanding various approaches to improving your power curve

The industry has a lot of recommendations on how to improve performance, but how do you know what the expected impact will be?  Here is a quick summary:

Each region of the power curve can be improved in different ways:

  • Region 1 - Controller and generator optimization
  • Region 2 - Increase aerodynamic efficiency through mechanical, electrical or controller optimizations
  • Region 2.5 - Manage transition, loads and stall through controller optimization
  • Region 3 - Increase rated power through generator optimization
  • Region 4 - Manage load and power tradeoff
