Minimum pitch inconsistent with peers

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
