Peak demand, wind and back-up power / energy usage and storage capacity calculator
For the specification and design of renewable energy electricity generation systems which successfully smooth intermittent wind generation to serve customer demand, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 52 weeks a year.
Adopting the recommendation derived from scientific computer modelling, the tables offer rows of previously successful modelled system configurations – row A, a configuration with no back-up power and rows B to H offering alternative ratios of wind power to back-up power.
The wind power generation Capacity Factor (C.F.) percentage can be adjusted too.
The recommended energy storage capacity is about 90% of one day’s average wind energy generation.
