The paper simulates the potential impact of significant wind power capacity on key operational aspects of a medium-sized grid-power system, viz. generator loading levels, system reserve availability and generator ramping requirements. The measured data, from Northern Ireland, consist of three...
This paper describes a method of initialising dynamic wind turbine models in power-system simulations. The method uses grid-status information to initialise the grid-connected wind turbine model. The goal is to start a power-system simulation in a stationary state, without unnecessary transient...
St. Brendan's is an isolated rural community in the north of New foundland. It has an installed diesel generated electricity capacity of 735 kW with an annual average energy consumption of 3185 kWh/day. The average annual wind speed in the area is estimated at 7.6m/s. This paper describes the...
In December 2002, a new wind-diesel system, rated 30 kVA, was commissioned on the island of Osmussaare, Estonia, by the Swedish company PitchWind Systems AB. The wind-diesel system is the only power source on this isolated island, where a radar station is under construction. The end user is the...
Using the vortex specification, the expression outlet for the blade angle of a HAWT turbine blade element is shown to exhibit a minimum that has some implications for design.
A wind driven ventilator is a simple, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly device that can improve comfort and the working environment. Unfortunately very little is known about the complex flow field associated with the operation of this device. A wind tunnel investigation of the flow...
