Three Types of Power Curves in Breeze

Manufacturer Power Curve

This is the warranted power curve that is associated the specific turbines and normally taken from the contract between the turbine owner and the manufacturer. This is also the power curve that Breeze uses to compare the power output against. 

Best Fit Power Curve

This power curve is calculated with all the wind and power data for the chosen period in Breeze. So everywhere you see a Best fit power curve it is based on the time period that is associated with the page you're looking at. In the Data studio you can filter the data that calculates this power curve.

Learned Power Curve

This power curve is calculated via a certain algorithm in Breeze. It is calculated on a daily basis and is including data historically until enough data is included to execute the calculation. So learned power curve July might include data back to April and learned power curve June back to March.

Both Best fit and Learned power curve are site specific based on the data collected at the turbine. If they deviate much from the Manufacturer power curve it might be good to investigate this further.
