Adding a new wind turbine

Is it possible to add a small wind turbine? Thank you,

Paul Gilman

You can use SAM's library editor to add a small turbine. Please see the instructions on this post.

If you need help adding the turbine, please attach a copy of the turbine's power curve, along with its nameplate capacity and rotor diameter in a reply to this post, and I will create a library file for you.

Best regards,
Paul.

Thanks Paul. The link doesn't seem to work. I read your instructions to add a turbine by going through the large wind section. Is this link the same?

Thanks,

Rick

Sorry about that Rick. I fixed the link, so it should work now. And, yes the link points to the instructions for adding a turbine to the large wind turbine library. You can use the same procedure to add a turbine to the small wind turbine library, "SAM/Small Scale Wind Turbine Library." It uses the SmallScaleWindTurbine library type.

Best regards,
Paul.

Thanks Paul.

Paul, I successfully entered the performance curve but have looked everywhere to add the capital cost data for our turbine. Thanks again for your time

The turbine library only stores the performance data for the turbine. You enter turbine costs and other project costs on the System Costs page.

Best regards,
Paul.
