Very Low Wind Generation Period of Jan-09, and a 1-Year Lookback at Frequency of Very Low Wind Gen Periods
Author: Bonneville Power Authority
The very low wind generation period of Jan-09 has ended, after: • more than 11-1/2 continuous days with total wind gen <50 MW: 14-Jan-09 02:43:00 thru 25-Jan-09 17:13:00 (11 days, 14.5 hours); and • more than 8-1/2 continuous days <10 MW: 14-Jan-09 16:59:00 thru 23-Jan-09 07:37:00 (8 days, 14.6 hours) How often in the past year have we seen others periods of “very low” wind generation? The next plot shows the Percent of Time by Week Where Total Wind Gen Was <50 MW over the last 56 . . .More »
