What Is a Windstream Speed Test?
Windstream speed tests are used to check the speed and efficiency of a wind turbine and are a standard feature for many new turbines. The main objective of these tests is to measure how many rotations per minute (RPM) the turbine can produce at different power settings. This will give you an indication of how efficient your windmill is and whether it meets your particular needs. As there are so many different models of wind turbines available, and of course different requirements for performance from residential power use to commercial applications, the testing should be done correctly to ensure that your system performs at its best.
Windspeed tests have many benefits to their users. If the turbine is performing to standard then you are likely to save money as well as helping to reduce the impact of carbon emissions. The best windspeed tests are those that test at every setting possible to ensure that your turbine performs in the way you want it to. By ensuring that all the necessary checks are carried out in each and every setting, you can see how effective your turbines are in any given situation. It may seem obvious to you that the highest setting should be the most effective, but it can sometimes be more difficult to spot errors in the testing process when doing it yourself.
To do a wind speed test on your turbine, you need to set it to a preset power output for a period of time. For example, if you want to see how fast the turbine can turn at full speed you should do this for a certain amount of time before and after the turbine turns at its lowest setting. You should then repeat the process for as many times as required. If your turbine does not perform at all in the first set of tests, then you should try another set to ensure that it is functioning correctly.
