The wind atlas was presented using the WAsP software based on the wind datas of twenty four regions in Inner Mongolia during 1998-2008, which were provided by the China meteorological date sharing service system. Using the Weibull probability density function of wind speed and Weibull distribution function of output power of wind turbine, the extreme value of the two functions were obtained Furthermore, two formulas of the cut-in wind speed and rated wind speed were derived. Finally the cut-in wind speed and rated wind speed for six regions in Inner Mongolia under different wind resource condition were also calculated.

  • Analysis of seasonal wind speed and wind power density distribution in Aimangala wind form at Chitradurga Karnataka using two parameter weibull distribution function

    Modeling of wind speed variation is an essential requirement in the estimation of wind energy potential for a typical site. In this paper, the average wind from April 2007 to March 2008 in Aimangala at central dry zone part of Karnataka, India have been statistically analyzed to determine wind energy potential for electrical power generation by grouping the seasonal observations. We show that the wind speed distribution is represented by the typical two parameter weibull function for prediction of wind energy out put required for preliminary design and assessment of wind power plant. The shape and scale parameters of weibull function have been estimated seasonal basis to calculate the average wind speed and wind power density for the Aimangala station. The maximum power density was found to be 829.73 W/m<sup>2</sup> in monsoon season and the minimum power density was found to be 186.15 W/m<sup>2</sup> in winter season. The Weibull function using Weibull parameter estimated in this paper shown to provide more accurate prediction of average wind speed and average power density for the selected station. The seasonal variation of wind speed and wind density studied in this paper is useful to ensure optimum selection of wind turbine generator.

  • Decoupling control of series-connected DC wind turbines with energy storage system for offshore DC wind farm

    DC wind farm (DCWF) with series-connected DC wind turbines (DCWT) is proved to be a potential solution of offshore wind power collection. The coupling behavior of series-connected DCWTs is described in detail. Possible wind energy curtailment during the period of wind turbine voltage limitation and its key impact factors are firstly quantitatively derived. A decoupling control strategy is proposed under voltage limiting condition of the DCWT with energy storage system (ESS) to improve its wind energy capture. This control algorithm can be implemented in the local DCWT controller without the communication. Dynamic simulation cases under different operation conditions have been conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy. It is found that the proposed control strategy might be a solution for wind energy curtailment, which will significantly improve the performance of the series-connected DC wind turbines between the time scale above seconds and below minutes.

  • Wind Resource Assessment In The Western Part Of Algerian Highlands, Case Study Of El-Bayadh

    the aim of this work is to assess the wind potential in El-Bayadh region, located in the western part of Algerian highlands, using 12 years collected data. The statistical analysis at the measurement mast give the studied region with a significant wind potential, approved with an annual mean wind speed equal to 4.83 m/s and an annual mean power density of 133W/m2 at 10m over ground level. Regarding the temporal study, it was found that the studied site is windiest from February until March, while the night time is relatively calm. The use of WAsP software leads us to evaluate the distributions of mean wind speed over the region of El-Bayadh and to simulate the energy produced by a hypotheticals wind farms established in the two windiest areas in the region. The wind farm layout optimization using wind turbines of 2 MW rated capacity from Bonus manufacturer has allowed to maximize the simulated annual energy production and the full load hours for the two simulated wind farms. Finally, the economic analysis gives a cost per kWh less than 0.0142 US$ for both wind parks.

    In order to ensure safety of wind turbines using non-grid-connected wind power and to reduce the occurrence of faults, as well as to improve the reliability of wind turbines, three different wind wheel unbalance faults are researched through theoretical analysis and experimental simulation in laboratory conditions. A wind turbine test rig has been established and a wind turbine condition monitoring has been developed. Three wind wheel unbalance faults are simulated on the test rig, and by analyzing the experimental results of power output and vibration characteristics in different conditions, the influence of wind wheel unbalance on power output and vibration characteristics is presented.

  • Comparative Study Of Wind Pumping Performance In Two Algerian Coastal And Saharan Regions

    This work proposes to carry out a comparative study of wind pumping performances in two different zones characterized by their climatic differences. To achieve this goal, we must first quantify the energy potential of the wind in order to optimize the design of the wind pumping system, which consists of a whisper of 1KW. The available wind potential was evaluated using the OWC utility of the Atlas Wind Analysis and Application Program (WAsP software). The wind data used are measurements taken by a research team of the UDES during the whole year of 2016 for the site of bouismail and the data of ONM 2016 for Adrar. The tower height of the wind turbine is first optimized according to the height of the monomer and the pumping rate increases to meet the needs of a good irrigation field. A global modeling system, correlated to the available characteristic of each site, is carried out to estimate the flows taken from the hourly scales, the daily scales and the scales of the year. Finally, the results are compared and the recommendations given.

  • Applying Numerical Weather Prediction Models to the Production of New European Wind Atlas : Sensitivity studies of the wind climate to the planetary boundary layer parametrization

    Reliable and precise information about the wind speed climate is crucial for the development of wind energy. Meteorological processes in the mesoscale (2 - 200 km) can be represented using Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models such as the Weather Research and Forecast model (WRF), but before their application for creating wind energy atlases, their results and sensitivity to modelling parameters should be investigated. Here the WRF model wind speed results for the year 2015 for the Baltic Sea region are investigated, and the effect of the planetary boundary layer parametrization scheme is analyzed.

  • Increasing efficiency in wind energy electricity generating by signal processing from wind measuring equipment on wind turbine for the determination of wind direction

    Wind energy is a type of clean energy which Thailand generates it for 299.17 MW. However, its problems found in Thailand are unconstant wind blowing and not high wind blowing speed. In Chaiyaphum province, an average wind blowing speed is 5.77 m/s throughout the year. Regarding the electricity generating of the wind turbine operation, there is a slow direction finding of the wind turbine due to its big size. (2.5 MW electricity generating per wind turbine). This has effect on ineffective operation in electricity generating. Natural condition of the wind involves change in wind direction. The wind turbine generating electricity also turns based on wind direction (90o) for electricity generating. The wind turbine will stop electricity generating when the wind stops blowing. Also, the face of the wind turbine will stop based on the direction of the wind blowing through it in which it is inappropriate direction for electricity generating in the next round. The wind turbine has to waste the time in turning back to the normal wind direction (Turn around 180 degree take time 10 minutes). This study presents the determination of wind direction of the wind turbine by using standard deviation of direction signal from wind measuring equipment on the wind turbine. This study presented method results in the wind turbine to stop and waits for the wind in an appropriate position. Besides, it reduces the time of wind turbine turning to the wind direction. Also, it increases an opportunity for effective electricity generating.
