Breeze Academy: Budgets in Breeze

Three types of power curves in Breeze.

The budget is representing the expected power production of the wind turbine, normally called the P50 production of the turbine are the wind farm. In Breeze this is divided in to monthly budgets. Normally some parts of the year are windier than other, so there should be some deviations between the months. If you only have a yearly budget this can be divided equally in 12 sections.

Budgets in Breeze

Where is the Budget Used?

In Breeze the budget is mainly used at the Analyze pages. You can there compare the actual production of the portfolio, wind farm or turbine with the budget. Those pages will give you a quick overview on how the turbines are performing.

Where do you edit the budget?

When we install a wind farm in Breeze, we also add the budget data. But sometimes there is a need to change the budget.

The budgets can be found at the Turbine settings. You can either add a “Normal year budget” or a budget for each specific year. With only a Normal year budget in the settings, this budget will be used for all years.

If you add a yearly specific budget, you’ll need to add budget for all years. Then the Normal year budget is overruled. 

It is easy to copy budgets between turbines and different years.
