Presented at: European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2-6 juli 2001.

The paper describes the development of methods for the power performance evaluation of autonomous wind turbine systems designed for electricity production. Three system types have been investigated. The emphasiswas on the evaluation of the effect of the electrical load on the power production of the turbine. Measurements and simulations showed that, if certain conditions are met, a straight forward method similar to the method applied for grid connected systems is feasible.
