PUF: What are we looking at here?

Paul Hofmann: This demo is about improving capacity utilization and generation for utilities. We use a wind farm to show how to improve the installed capacity. We start with a dashboard. Using it we can do a deep dive to see the maximum capacity that we could achieve.

We have a natural loss of capacity because the wind doesn't blow all the time. Then we have a technical loss because the windmill is not up all the time — it has to be repaired or updated.
