Estimation of wind energy potential using WAsP model in the sub watershed of Oued-Sakni region-Algeria

Estimation of wind energy potential using WAsP model in the sub watershed of Oued-Sakni... This paper is a case study aiming at the determination of wind power potential in the Oued-Sakni sub-watershed. The objective is to provide wind energy for agro-pastoral regions, specially designed for irrigation systems, considering the fact that this region is far from the electricity grid. Statistical methods and the WAsP model were used to determine the climatological and energy characteristics of wind in this region. The results of this study are presented in the form of four tables containing the values of the parameters of the Weibull statistical distribution ‘A’ and ‘k’ for levels 10, 25and 50 m for standard conditions. Each table corresponds to a type of roughness length. A fifth table contains the calculated values of the mean speed and the mean total wind power available at the same levels and same type of roughness length. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Wind Engineering SAGE

Abstract

This paper is a case study aiming at the determination of wind power potential in the Oued-Sakni sub-watershed. The objective is to provide wind energy for agro-pastoral regions, specially designed for irrigation systems, considering the fact that this region is far from the electricity grid. Statistical methods and the WAsP model were used to determine the climatological and energy characteristics of wind in this region. The results of this study are presented in the form of four tables containing the values of the parameters of the Weibull statistical distribution ‘A’ and ‘k’ for levels 10, 25and 50 m for standard conditions. Each table corresponds to a type of roughness length. A fifth table contains the calculated values of the mean speed and the mean total wind power available at the same levels and same type of roughness length.
