Critical Power

Post by fazel1010 » Wed Jun 05, 2019 11:18 pm

I was wondering if there's would be a way to include a critical power calculation and curve into Rubitrack. I use WKO and GoldenCheetah as well as rubiTrack, but those are overkill and GoldenCheetah is pretty buggy. The reason I still import all of my stuff into those is they do a nice job calculating critical power (analogue for threshold) for various periods of time, e.g., the last three weeks, six months, or the last year. I don't think the calculation is proprietary as it's based on a paper written a long time ago (Monod and Scherrer). You'd basically have to create an algorithm to search through cycling data for the selected time period and identify the best power for various durations. GoldenCheetah typically uses three, one between 1-5 minutes, a second between 10-20 minutes, and a third somewhere around an hour. The generated curve is very useful as well. Thanks!
