Rated power at rated speed issue?

Hi @Jason.Jonkman ,

I ran the 5MW_Land_DLL_WTurb model at 13 m/s which had a rated speed of 11.4m/s and was expecting it to reach the rated power of 5MW. The average power I see is 4.728MW. Is this the case ? or am I interpreting it wrong or may have not used correct parameters etc.

Dear @Karthik.Prakash,

I’m not seeing anything I wouldn’t expect. The power is limited to 5 MW and when the wind speed drops below rated, the power drops. So, the average power will be less than 5 MW when running with turbulent wind around rated.

Best regards,
