Minimum speed of the generator for CART2 and CART3?

Dear all,

Somebody knows, what is the minimum speed at which the generator (wgmin) of the CART2 (CART3) can be operated?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Jovan,

The CARTs are currently programmed such that they will start when the wind speed is sustained above 5 m/s with peaks above 6 m/s. They switch back to waiting for wind when the rotor speed falls below 10 RPM, which usually occurs at or below 4 m/s. Hope this helps!
