Dynamic Performance Model for Wind Turbine Generators

Prajwal Gautam and  Ganesh Kumar Venayagamoorthy

Wind turbine power curves are based on the industry standard IEC 61400-12-1. Power curves are used for planning purposes and estimating total wind power production. Wind velocity are collected and averaged over 10-minute periods.  Traditional methods do not explain varying characteristics in wind dynamics where multiple power productions are observed for same wind speed. When the input parameters such as wind speed and wind directions are known and the output parameter wind power are known for an installed wind turbine generation plant, a dynamic computational network such as neural network is used to develop operation model and estimate the wind power generation.
