Understanding minimum pitch inconsistent with peers turbine issue check
What is the purpose of the turbine issue check?
- A given turbine has a minimum pitch that differs from others of the same turbine model at a given site.
- The appropriate minimum pitch depends on many wind farm specific factors including nominal air density, turbulence, blade surface conditions, and blade modifications. The pitch angle settings in region 2 of the power curve impact the angle of attack and efficiency of the rotor blades.
What does this look like?
- Different minimum pitch settings within their population across the farm
