The Wind Turbine tab in the Simulation Results window contains the following output variables.

Variable

Description

Total Rated Capacity

The highest possible power amount from the wind turbine(s), in kW

Mean Output

The average power amount of the wind turbine over the year, in kW

Capacity Factor

The average power output of the wind turbine(s) divided by the total wind turbine capacity, in %

Total Production

The total power output of the wind turbine(s) over the year, in kWh/yr

Minimum Output

The minimum power output of the wind turbine over the year, in kW

Maximum Output

The maximum power output of the wind turbine over the year, in kW

Wind Penetration

The average power output of the wind turbine(s) divided by the average primary load, in %

Hours of Operation

The number of hours of the year during which the wind turbine output was greater than zero

Levelized Cost

The levelized cost of energy of the wind turbine(s), in $/kWh

In the bottom half of the page a DMap appears showing the power output of the wind turbine(s) in each time step of the year.
