Calculated Yield of Small Wind Turbines at Zeeland Test Site

By Paul Gipe

Data on actual measured performance of small wind turbines at the Test Field for Small Wind Turbines in Zeeland, the Netherlands. The site has a very low average wind speed of only 3.8 m/s during the 2008 test period. The turbines, on the whole, performed poorly.
