Operating Performance Indicators

This section shows an overview to evaluate the Production of the current Project.

 Initial (MWh/a)Full-load Hours (h/a)Capacity Factor (%)∑ (MWh)

Production Reference Value

The Potential respective the Production in MWh/a for the different cases.

Full-load Hours are a measure of utilization for technical facilities. A wind turbine with installed Power of 3 MW produces 7'000 MWh electricity. The maximum Full-load Hours are then 7'000 MWh / 3 MW = 2'333 h/a. The generated energy corresponds to the energy the wind turbine would generate if it would produces these 2'333 h/a with maximal Power and the rest of time it would produce nothing. In reality, the facility will produces with reduced Power, but over more hours.

Full-load Hours are shown in hours per year (h/a).

The Capacity Factor shows how many hours the Production Unit has to work on Full-load.

The Capacity Factor is shown in percentage as number of operating hours from number of hours per year.

The produced energy over the whole Project Lifetime in MWh.
