Array Efficiency

Windturbines organised in an array influence those wind turbines that are in the wake. This results in less than ideally expected energy output from the windfarm. The efficiency factor associated with this loss is known as Array Efficiency. It is a ratio of ideal theoretical generation from Windfarm as if there was no array effect to actual generation. It is computed as follows:

Array Efficiency = Ideal theoretical generation/Actual generation
