The work described in this paper compares the measured blade root flapwise bending moment on a 400W 3-bladed wind turbine to analytical predictions and calculations from the “simple load model” of the International Electrotechnical Commission safety standard for small wind turbines. The...
Battle Harbour is a small island in the Labrador Sea just off the South East coast of Labrador. Presently, electricity is generated on Battle Harbour using a diesel generator when the island is populated for 3 summer months per year. Due to its remote location, the fuel cost on Battle Harbour is...
This paper describes an objective decision making approach for wind energy site assessment. It is often assumed that a full year of measured data is necessary to make a decision of whether or not to build a wind farm at a site, due to larger uncertainty in estimating the long-term wind resource...
Condition monitoring (CM) systems are increasingly installed in wind turbines with the goal of providing component-specific information to wind farm operators, theoretically increasing equipment availability via maintenance and operating actions based on this information. In the offshore case,...
The wind characteristic for six stations, on the Red Sea and Sinai coasts in Egypt, are analyzed for power generation. The Weibull parameters are determined by two methods. The best locations are El-Tur, Hurghada and Zafarana, where annual average wind speed at 10m are greater than 4.5m/s.
