Annual energy calculations are frequently used to optimize design parameters at a turbine site and to compare energy production based on equipment offers from various suppliers. In this latter context, one must be careful. The value of energy produced at a site can be significantly influenced by the calculation methodology and the assumptions used. This paper discusses important factors for annual energy calculations, suggests specification provided information, and proposes a standard tabular methodology for project bid evaluation.
