Description (excerpt):

Wind farm availability terms differ widely with the intended use; whenever an availability figure is referenced, it should be carefully defined. Any definition of availability must clarify the scope of analysis, and a prioritized list of states. This white paper offers a framework for understanding and comparing various forms of availability reporting.
