The results are tabulated at table 3. For each example turbine height, the free space path loss to the turbine location is shown together with the calculated actual path loss to the turbine tip and to points 20m below and above the turbine tip height

Path loss Calculations


There is a significant difference in path loss between the turbine tip at the LoS height and a point 20m below the tip, suggesting anything 20m or more below the LoS height can be ignored from the calculation.
