In preparation for my research purposes, I simulated the behaviour of the WindPACT model (1.5MW), which is based on the GE1.5s. When I had a look at the correlation of wind speed and pitch angle, I noticed that the rated wind speed of the WindPACT model is at 10-11 m/s, this is also what the documentary of the WindPACT model says. But on www.wind-turbine-models.com I found that the rated wind speed of the GE1.5s is 13 m/s. I am working with SCADA-Data of a real GE1.5s and it also shows a rated wind speed of 13 m/s. I would like the WindPACT model to work at the higher rated wind speed 13 m/s.
- Why is the rated wind speed different? Is there another version of the GE1.5s which has a lower rated wind speed?
- Do you have ideas in which ways I could manipulate the WindPACT model so it has a rated wind speed at 13 m/s?
I use PCMode 3 (with pitch.ipt inputfile) for Pitch control. Please tell me which more specific information you need to answer my questions.
