Monitored Data

Within the analysis facilities at the Sotavento Experimental Wind Farm the main parameters are monitored for the comprehensive method of study and analysis of real systems. This data is forms an extensive database that makes SOTAVENTO a reference centre and a driving force for technological studies previously agreed and signed for in conjunction with universities, companies and foundations. The complete list of variables monitored by type of facility is as follows:
