S E S Pf U

Where S(P); is the power error band (computed from S;) for a given confidence level and f (U;) is the annual probability of the wind being in the ith bin. It should be noted that this treatment only deals with random errors (referred to as category A uncertainties by the IEC) and that the effect of bias errors associated with the instruments and other factors (category B uncertainties) should be included separately. The RISO work concluded that the testing procedures were not accurate enough to identify with confidence differences in performance of less than 5 percent.

The current IEC standard presents a detailed methodology for analysing how errors propagate through the power curve to the energy yield calculations. Because of its importance, the approach is outlined here.

Solar Stirling Engine Basics Explained

The solar Stirling engine is progressively becoming a viable alternative to solar panels for its higher efficiency. Stirling engines might be the best way to harvest the power provided by the sun. This is an easy-to-understand explanation of how Stirling engines work, the different types, and why they are more efficient than steam engines.
