Performance Limits

 

Cut-in Wind Speed:
Depending on technical construction or process control wind turbines have different cut-in wind speeds. Most wind turbines start with energy production at wind speeds between 2,5 m/s (9 km/h) and 3,5 m/s (12,6 km/h).

Cut-out Wind Speed:

Wind turbines stop production, if wind speeds reach a 10 second medium of 20 to 30 m/s (72 bis 108 km/h). Due to safty reasons blades are turned out of the wind.

 

Maximum wind speed:
The maximum wind speed describes the wind speed to which limit the wind turbine is constructed. These limits can differ. The construction limits for most of the wind turbines are 52 to 68 m/s (187,2 bis 244,8 km/h).
