Potential wind power generation in South Egypt  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Egypt is one of the developing countries. The production of electricity in Egypt is basically on petroleum, natural gas, hydro-power and wind energy. The objective of this work to prove the availability of sufficient wind potential in the wide area of deep south Egypt for the operation of wind turbines there. Nevertheless, it gives in general an approximate profile which is useful to the wind parks design for this area. The data used in the calculation are published and analyzed for the first time. The diagrams of the measured wind data for three meteorological stations over a period of two years (wind speed, frequency, direction), wind shear coefficient, the mean monthly and annual wind speed profile for every location are presented. Monthly Weibull parameters, standard deviation and coefficient of variation have been statistically discussed. A comparison of the rose diagrams shows that the wind speed is more persistent and blow over this region of Egypt in two main sectors N and NNW with long duration of frequencies from 67% to 87% over the year with an average wind speed in the range 6.8–7.9 m/s at the three stations. Evaluation of monthly wind energy density at 10 m height by two different methods was carried out. And the final diagram for every site shows no significant difference between them. The annual natural wind energies at 70 m A.G.L. lie between 333 and 377 W/m2 for Dakhla South and Kharga stations, respectively, which is similar to the inland wind potential of Vindeby (Denmark) and some European countries. These results indicate that Kharga and Dakhla South locations are new explored sites for future wind power generation projects.

Investigating possible wind energy potential to meet the power shortage in Karachi  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Electricity is always considered as an important ingredient for development of a country. Energy deficit affects the growth rate of the country and causes discomfort to the consumer. The power shortage in Karachi, the largest city and economical hub of Pakistan, is highly hampering the progress of the city. Presently the energy deficit in the city is around 328 MW. This paper presents an analytical analysis of incorporation of small residential windmills to reduce the power shortage in Karachi. To estimate the wind energy potential in the city, four years wind data is collected from Pakistan Metrological Department (PMD) at various heights (10 m, 30 m, 50 m, 75 m and 100 m). The statistical calculations on wind data using SPSS software show that the city has an enormous wind potential available. A case study is also carried to show the effect of incorporation of small residential wind mills in power system. The results shows 1678 MW h of energy could be saved if 50% of residential consumers are equipped with small windmills. The paper also discusses the possible resistance in the introduction of small residential windmills in domestic sector. The potential benefits to the utility and consumers are also presented in this paper.

Off-shore wind power potential evaluation and economy analysis of entire Japan using GIS technology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Off-shore wind energy has been drawing interest recently. This research is focusing on the potential analysis of off-shore wind energy surrounding entire Japan coast using GIS technology. Base on the economy and environment assessment, this research is evaluating the current situation and forecasting on future of wind energy technology in Japan. In order to reduce the green-house gas emission, renewable energy (such as wind energy, solar energy, fuel cell) will gradually substitute can be installed the primary energy resource (such as coal, oil, scale gas). Based on GIS technique, wind power turbines in the surrounding area of Japanese coast-line. In the study, 2,000 kW rated wind turbines are considered for further installation. As the result of this study, we have determined that 108,067 in 330 places number of off-shore with annual generation of 180.0 TWh are expected. This is equal to 20% of annual total generated power of Japan in 2010. Wind speed 6 m/s or more of the coastline, the average cost of electricity is about generation cost is within 10 to 17 Japanese Yen/kWh and construction cost is within 139,445 Japanese Yen/kW to 240,366 Japanese Yen/kW.

NREL Confirms Large Potential for Grid Integration of Wind, Solar Power (Fact Sheet)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

To fully harvest the nation's bountiful wind and solar resources, it is critical to know how much electrical power from these renewable resources could be integrated reliably into the grid. To inform the discussion about the potential of such variable sources, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) launched two key regional studies, examining the east and west sections of the U.S. power grid. The studies show that it is technically possible for U.S. power systems to integrate 20%-35% renewable electricity if infrastructure and operational improvements can be made.

The potential for arbitrage of wind and solar surplus power in Denmark  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We have recently developed a simple yet powerful method to identify key properties of electricity systems with a high share of renewables. Here, our weather-driven methodology is described and applied to model the Danish power system with combined wind and solar energy gross shares of up to 100% of the total demand. We show that in a wind only scenario, surplus energy grows rapidly beyond gross shares of about 50%, while the potential for arbitrage of surplus renewable energy, i.e. demand-side management or high-efficiency storage, is very limited in this case. A scenario with a wind-solar energy mix of 80/20, on the other hand, both decreases the total amount of surplus and has a significantly higher potential for arbitrage of the remaining surplus. However, beyond gross shares of about 75%, only large-scale seasonal storage of, e.g. hydrogen, enables the use of Danish surplus wind and solar energy to cover the residual Danish electricity demand in both scenarios.

Wind power generating system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Normally feathered propeller blades of a wind power generating system unfeather in response to the actuation of a power cylinder that responds to actuating signals. Once operational, the propellers generate power over a large range of wind velocities. A maximum power generation design point signals a feather response of the propellers so that once the design point is reached no increase in power results, but the system still generates power. At wind speeds below this maximum point, propeller speed and power output optimize to preset values. The propellers drive a positive displacement pump that in turn drives a positive displacement motor of the swash plate type. The displacement of the motor varies depending on the load on the system, with increasing displacement resulting in increasing propeller speeds, and the converse. In the event of dangerous but not clandestine problems developing in the system, a control circuit dumps hydraulic pressure from the unfeathering cylinder resulting in a predetermined, lower operating pressure produced by the pump. In the event that a problem of potentially cladestine consequence arises, the propeller unfeathering cylinder immediately unloads. Upon startup, a bypass around the motor is blocked, applying a pressure across the motor. The motor drives the generator until the generator reaches a predetermined speed whereupon the generator is placed in circuit with a utility grid and permitted to motor up to synchronous speed.

Wind Power | Open Energy Information  

Open Energy Info (EERE)

Wind Power Wind Power Jump to: navigation, search Wind Power WIndfarm.Sunset.jpg Wind power is a form of solar energy.[1] Wind is caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, variations in the earth's surface, and rotation of the earth. Mountains, bodies of water, and vegetation all influence wind flow patterns[2], [3]. Wind energy (or wind power) describes the process by which wind is used to generate electricity. Wind turbines convert the energy in wind to electricity by rotating propeller-like blades around a rotor. The rotor turns the drive shaft, which turns an electric generator.[2] Three key factors affect the amount of energy a turbine can harness from the wind: wind speed, air density, and swept area.[4] Mechanical power can also be utilized directly for specific tasks such as

Wind energy potential in the United States  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Estimates of the electricity that could potentially be generated by wind power and of the land area available for wind energy development have been calculated for the contiguous United States. The estimates are based on published wind resource data and exclude windy lands that are not suitable for development as a result of environmental and land-use considerations. Despite these exclusions, the potential electric power from wind energy is surprisingly large. Good wind areas, which cover 6% of the contiguous US land area, have the potential to supply more than one and a half times the current electricity consumption of the United States. Technology under development today will be capable of producing electricity economically from good wind sites in many regions of the country.

New England Wind Forum: Selling Wind Power  

Wind Powering America (EERE)

Selling Wind Power Selling Wind Power Markets are either well-developed or developing for each of the 'products' produced by wind generators. These include electricity products and generation attributes. Electricity Electricity can be used in two ways: on-site (interconnected behind a retail customer's meter) of for sales of electricity over the electric grid. On-site generation can displace a portion of a customer's purchases of electricity from the grid. In addition, net metering rules are in place at the state level that in some cases allow generation in excess of on-site load to be sold back to the local utility (see state pages for net metering specifics). For sales over the electricity grid, the Independent System Operator of New England (ISO New England) creates and manages a wholesale market for electric energy, capacity, and ancillary services within the New England Power Pool (NEPOOL). Wind generators may sell their electric energy and capacity in spot markets organized by the ISO, or they may contract with wholesale buyers to sell these products for any term to buyers operating in the ISO New England marketplace. Wind generators do not generally produce other marketable ancillary services. The ISO has rules specific to the operation of wind generators reflecting operations, scheduling, calculation of installed capacity credit, and so forth.

Kickoff of Offshore Wind Power in China: Playoffs for China Wind Power Development  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Year 2010 is the significant year of offshore wind power development in China. The first national offshore wind power project is connected to the grid, and the first round of concession projects marks the strong support from central government. It is foreseeable that offshore wind power capacity in China will expand rapidly in the future, and the understanding pattern of it is crucial for analyzing the overall wind market in China and global offshore wind power development. This paper firstly provides an overview of global offshore wind power development, then in China, including historical installation, potential of resources, demonstration and concession projects, and target of development. Based on this, analysis on current policies related to offshore wind power and their implementation, current wind farm developers and turbine manufacturers of China's offshore wind industry is done. All the previous analysis generates complete evaluation of current status and some issues and trends of China offshore wind power development, based on which some policy recommendations for sustainable development of offshore wind power are made.

Estimation of capacity credit for wind power in Libya  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents the results of a study that evaluated the wind potential at the central region of the Libyan coast and estimated the capacity credit of wind power in the national network. Several sites were investigated to choose the most suitable sites for wind farm establishment. Different sizes of Wind Energy Converter Systems (WECSs) were selected to estimate the wind potential. The sizes were selected to satisfy present and future market development as well as to satisfy technical, economic, and environmental aspects. Wind data from three meteorological stations in the proposed region were used in assessing the wind potential. The wind potential was estimated according to the characteristics of the sites and power curves of the WECSs, and considering certain assumptions. The results showed that the capacity credit varied from about 20% to 50%, depending on penetration levels of wind power, for the assumptions made in this study.

Are global wind power resource estimates overstated?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Estimates of the global wind power resource over land range from 56 to 400 TW. Most estimates have implicitly assumed that extraction of wind energy does not alter large-scale winds enough to significantly limit wind power production. Estimates that ignore the effect of wind turbine drag on local winds have assumed that wind power production of 2–4 W m?2 can be sustained over large areas. New results from a mesoscale model suggest that wind power production is limited to about 1 W m?2 at wind farm scales larger than about 100 km2. We find that the mesoscale model results are quantitatively consistent with results from global models that simulated the climate response to much larger wind power capacities. Wind resource estimates that ignore the effect of wind turbines in slowing large-scale winds may therefore substantially overestimate the wind power resource.

Federal and state policies play an important role in encouraging wind energy development by leveling the playing field compared to other energy sources. Many of the substantial benefits of wind power as a domestic, zero-emission part of the energy portfolio - sustainability, displacement of pollutant emissions from other power sources, fuel diversity, price stabilization, keeping a substantial portion of energy expenditures in the local economy - are shared by society as a whole and cannot be readily captured by wind generators directly in the price they charge for their output. In addition, while wind power receives some policy support, the level of federal incentives for wind represents less than 1% of the subsidies and tax breaks given to the fossil fuels and nuclear industries (source: "Wind Power An Increasingly Competitive Source of New Generation."

On the effect of spatial dispersion of wind power plants on the wind energy capacity credit  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Wind energy is now a mature technology and can be considered as a significant contributor in reducing CO2 emissions and protecting the environment. To meet the wind energy national targets, effective implementation of massive wind power installed capacity in the power supply system is required. Additionally, capacity credit is an important issue for an unstable power supply system as in Greece. To achieve high and reliable wind energy penetration levels into the system, the effect of spatial dispersion of wind energy installations within a very wide area (e.g. national level) on the power capacity credit should be accounted for. In the present paper, a methodology for estimating the effect of spatial dispersion of wind farm installations on the capacity credit is presented and applied for the power supply system of Greece. The method is based on probability theory and makes use of wind forecasting models to represent the wind energy potential over any candidate area for future wind farm installations in the country. Representative wind power development scenarios are studied and evaluated. Results show that the spatial dispersion of wind power plants contributes beneficially to the wind capacity credit.

In Arkansas, state energy leaders are taking that advice and gathering the best possible data by which future developers can make decisions about the potential of wind energy in the state. While there are zero megawatts of wind power currently installed in Arkansas, gathering such data is crucial in showcasing the state's abilities to harvest wind.

Wind power forecast error smoothing within a wind farm  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Smoothing of wind power forecast errors is well-known for large areas. Comparable effects within a wind farm are investigated in this paper. A Neural Network was taken to predict the power output of a wind farm in north-western Germany comprising 17 turbines. A comparison was done between an algorithm that fits mean wind and mean power data of the wind farm and a second algorithm that fits wind and power data individually for each turbine. The evaluation of root mean square errors (RMSE) shows that relative small smoothing effects occur. However, it can be shown for this wind farm that individual calculations have the advantage that only a few turbines are needed to give better results than the use of mean data. Furthermore different results occurred if predicted wind speeds are directly fitted to observed wind power or if predicted wind speeds are first fitted to observed wind speeds and then applied to a power curve. The first approach gives slightly better RMSE values, the bias improves considerably.

A Multiscale Wind and Power Forecast System for Wind Farms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A large scale introduction of wind energy in power sector causes a number of challenges for electricity market and wind farm operators who will have to deal with the variability and uncertainty in the wind power generation in their scheduling and trading decisions. Numerical wind power forecasting has been identified as an important tool to address the increasing variability and uncertainty and to more efficiently operate power systems with large wind power penetration. It has been observed that even when the wind magnitude and direction recorded at a wind mast are the same, the corresponding energy productions can vary significantly. In this work we try to introduce improvements by developing a more accurate wind forecast system for a complex terrain. The system has been operational for eight months for the Bessaker Wind Farm located in the middle part of Norway in a very complex terrain. Operational power curves have also been derived from data analysis. Although the methodology explained has been developed for an onshore wind farm, it can very well be utilized in an offshore context also.

New England Wind Forum: Motivations for Buying Wind Power  

Wind Powering America (EERE)

Motivations for Buying Wind Power Motivations for Buying Wind Power Voluntary Voluntary purchases are often referred to as "Green Power." Voluntary purchases are made by individuals, businesses, governments, and groups of each (known as aggregations) to express personal preferences or meet personal or institutional commitments. One recent example of a government purchase is a request for proposals, issued in February 2005, to supply the Rhode Island State House with renewable energy for a five-year period. Hedging Hedging is a growing motivation to reduce exposure to volatile and rising energy costs. New England's publicly-owned utilities, as well as Vermont's utilities, can stabilize their fuel cost-driven supply portfolios with wind generation. In competitive markets that dominate the New England landscape, larger electricity customers are beginning to look to longer-term purchases of wind power as a means to protect their energy budgets against the volatile fossil-fuel-driven costs. Examples include:

The wind potential impact on the maximum wind energy penetration in autonomous electrical grids  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

According to long-term wind speed measurements the Aegean Archipelago possesses excellent wind potential, hence properly designed wind energy applications can substantially contribute to fulfill the energy requirements of the island societies. On top of this, in most islands the electricity production cost is extremely high, while significant insufficient power supply problems are often encountered, especially during the summer. Unfortunately, the stochastic behaviour of the wind and the important fluctuations of daily and seasonal electricity load pose a strict penetration limit for the contribution of wind energy in the corresponding load demand. The application of this limit is necessary in order to avoid hazardous electricity grid fluctuations and to protect the existing thermal power units from operating near or below their technical minima. In this context, the main target of the proposed study is to present an integrated methodology able to estimate the maximum wind energy penetration in autonomous electrical grids on the basis of the available wind potential existing in the Aegean Archipelago area. For this purpose a large number of representative wind potential types have been investigated and interesting conclusions have been derived.

Active Power Controls from Wind Power: Bridging the Gaps  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper details a comprehensive study undertaken by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Electric Power Research Institute, and the University of Colorado to understand how the contribution of wind power providing active power control (APC) can benefit the total power system economics, increase revenue streams, improve the reliability and security of the power system, and provide superior and efficient response while reducing any structural and loading impacts that may reduce the life of the wind turbine or its components. The study includes power system simulations, control simulations, and actual field tests using turbines at NREL's National Wind Technology Center (NWTC). The study focuses on synthetic inertial control, primary frequency control, and automatic generation control, and analyzes timeframes ranging from milliseconds to minutes to the lifetime of wind turbines, locational scope ranging from components of turbines to large wind plants to entire synchronous interconnections, and additional topics ranging from economics to power system engineering to control design.

Dynamic Models for Wind Turbines and Wind Power Plants  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The primary objective of this report was to develop universal manufacturer-independent wind turbine and wind power plant models that can be shared, used, and improved without any restrictions by project developers, manufacturers, and engineers. Manufacturer-specific models of wind turbines are favored for use in wind power interconnection studies. While they are detailed and accurate, their usages are limited to the terms of the non-disclosure agreement, thus stifling model sharing. The primary objective of the work proposed is to develop universal manufacturer-independent wind power plant models that can be shared, used, and improved without any restrictions by project developers, manufacturers, and engineers. Each of these models includes representations of general turbine aerodynamics, the mechanical drive-train, and the electrical characteristics of the generator and converter, as well as the control systems typically used. To determine how realistic model performance is, the performance of one of the models (doubly-fed induction generator model) has been validated using real-world wind power plant data. This work also documents selected applications of these models.

On methodology for modelling wind power impact on power systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

There is a continuous discussion going on concerning the integration cost of wind power. The integration cost can, for example, be defined as the extra costs in the rest of the system when wind power is introduced, compared with the situation without wind power. The result of the studies depends on both parameters and the method used. The aim of this paper is to structure the methods in order to get some understanding on the impact of different modelling approaches. In general, it can be noted that approximations are always needed since the integration of wind power includes so many complexities including stability of power systems, grid codes, market behaviour, uncertainties and trading possibilities. All these items have to be considered in both the wind power case and in the reference case to obtain an estimation of the integration cost.

Estimating the impacts of wind power on power systems—summary of IEA Wind  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Adding wind power to power systems will have beneficial impacts by reducing the emissions of electricity production and reducing the operational costs of the power system as less fuel is consumed in conventional power plants. Wind power will also have a capacity value to a power system. However, possible negative impacts will have to be assessed to make sure that they will only offset a small part of the benefits and also to ensure the security of the power system operation. An international forum for the exchange of knowledge of power system impacts of wind power has been formed under the IEA Implementing Agreement on Wind Energy. The Task 'Design and Operation of Power Systems with Large Amounts of Wind Power' is analyzing existing case studies from different power systems. There are a multitude of studies completed and ongoing related to the cost of wind integration. However, the results are not easy to compare. This paper describes the general issues of wind power impacts on power systems and presents a comparison of results from ten case studies on increased balancing needs due to wind power.

The Solar Wind Power from Magnetic Flux  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Observations of the fast, high-latitude solar wind throughout Ulysses' three orbits show that solar wind power correlates remarkably well with the Sun's total open magnetic flux. These observations support a recent model of the solar wind energy and particle sources, where magnetic flux emergence naturally leads to an energy flux proportional to the strength of the large-scale magnetic field. This model has also been shown to be consistent with X-ray observations of the Sun and a variety of other stars over 12 decades of magnetic flux. The observations reported here show that the Sun delivers ~600 kW Wb?1 to power the solar wind, and that this power to magnetic flux relation has been extremely stable over the last 15 years. Thus, the same law that governs energy released in the corona and from other stars also applies to the total energy in the solar wind.

Investigation of wind characteristics and wind energy potential at Ras Ghareb, Egypt  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

To study the structure of a coastal location «Ras Ghareb» on the Red Sea in Egypt, a measurement station with mast of 24.5 m has been established in a built-up area, near the seashore. First, a statistical analysis of the measured data over the period 2000–2005 was performed, including calculation of the wind speed power law index which was found to be 0.18 for Ras Ghareb area. Then, wind speed data was expressed at the height of (usually 10 m) which makes it directly related to the objective of those people working in the renewable energy sector. Therefore, the mean wind speeds, availability of data, seasonal variation and the distribution by the wind direction were studied to ascertain its potential for wind energy development. The annual wind speed over this site varies from 8.3 to 9.8 m/s at 10 and 24.5 m heights, respectively. Most of the time 73% the mean wind speed in the ranges 5–10 and 10–17 m/s at 10 m. Also, higher winds of the order 10 m/s and more observed during summer months. The main wind direction is north–northwest sector (330°) for about 51% of the times during the year that makes it unique for installation of wind parks. Second, numerical estimations to determine the seasonal power law coefficient and Weibull parameters at different heights from 10 to 100 m were carried out. Finally, Rayleigh distribution and our method stated in Ref. [3] were adopted for defining the monthly wind power available at 10 m height for this region. It is emphasized that Rayleigh model is not appropriate and our method is more efficient for Ras Ghareb area. Where the expected mean of wind power density was found to quite high 360 W/m2 per year at 10 m hub height, which makes this station likely candidates for wind power utilization. It is appear from our analysis that Ras Ghareb region can be explored for generating the electricity. Where the monthly and annual pattern of wind speed matches the electricity load pattern of the location.

Wind Power Quality Test for Comparison of Power Quality Standards  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Power quality testing is important to wind power applications for several reasons. The nature of wind turbine generation is different from conventional power plants. Although windfarms are growing in capacity and diversifying in nature in the U.S. and throughout the globe, there is no standard that addresses the power quality of wind turbines or wind farms. The International Electrotechnical Committee (IEC) has convened Working Group 10 (WG10) to address testing and assessment of power quality characteristics of wind turbines. A IEEE task force has been appointed to reconsider flicker measurement procedures in the U.S. Lastly, power quality tests are now required as part of the certification process for wind turbines. NREL began this work both in response to industry request and in support of the IEC working group. (Mr. Gregory is a member of the IEC working group) This paper presents the NREL Certification Testing Team's effort in developing procedures and equipment for power quality testing for wind turbine certification. Summaries of several power quality standards that are applicable to this process are also presented in this paper.

Chapter 2 Offshore Wind Power Stations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents the historical background and development of offshore wind power stations. As early as 1890, windmills were put to work to produce electricity and more than 50,000 mills were in use in the United States alone in the twenties and thirties. Their decline was precipitated by the Rural Electrification Program. According to the San Francisco based Transaction Energy Projects Institute, offshore windmills could generate all the electrical power needed by northern California. Ocean winds have of course provided energy to windmills for centuries. In 1976, a study was commissioned by the (U.S.) Energy Research and Development Administration to ascertain and assess the economic value of offshore multi units aiming at identification and classification of area offshore types, assessing utility requirements for offshore power systems. It includes developing installation concepts including various floating and bottom-mounted designs, assessing current WECS (wind energy converter systems) for use in offshore environments, assessing various electric transmission and hydrogen delivery concepts, and performing an economic assessment, providing tradeoffs for variables such as distance offshore, climate, bottom and wave characteristics and average wave velocities. It is suggested that high wind velocity sites must be identified because the energy flow increases with the cube of the wind velocity; the kinetic energy of the wind passing through the area swept by the blades of a turbine is the energy available to that wind turbine. An average wind speed distribution is required.

Feasibility study on wind-powered desalination  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

With the global demand for water rising, along with the ever-increasing scarcity of supply, desalination has been seen as a key proponent to meet the future challenges of fresh water. However, desalination uses significant amounts of energy, today mostly from fossil fuels. It is therefore favourable to rely on renewable energies, specifically the wind due to its low-cost and technological maturity, to power desalination systems. To prove the technical feasibility of wind-powered desalination with both reverse osmosis and mechanical vapour compression, physicsbased system models have been developed and the technical feasibility of using wind as the power source for desalination has been confirmed. The economics of wind-powered desalination are also favourable. The costs are in line with what is expected for a conventional desalination system, proving to be particularly cost-competitive in areas with good wind resources that have high costs of energy. It can be concluded that wind-powered desalination can be competitive with other desalination systems, providing safe and clean drinking water efficiently in an environmentally responsible manner.

Projected changes in wind energy potentials over Iberia  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Wind energy potential in Iberia is assessed for recent–past (1961–2000) and future (2041–2070) climates. For recent–past, a COSMO-CLM simulation driven by ERA-40 is used. COSMO-CLM simulations driven by ECHAM5 following the A1B scenario are used for future projections. A 2 MW rated power wind turbine is selected. Mean potentials, inter-annual variability and irregularity are discussed on annual/seasonal scales and on a grid resolution of 20 km. For detailed regional assessments eight target sites are considered. For recent–past conditions, the highest daily mean potentials are found in winter over northern and eastern Iberia, particularly on high-elevation or coastal regions. In northwestern Iberia, daily potentials frequently reach maximum wind energy output (50 MWh day?1), particularly in winter. Southern Andalucía reveals high potentials throughout the year, whereas the Ebro valley and central-western coast show high potentials in summer. The irregularity in annual potentials is moderate (2 MWh day?1). The northward displacement of North Atlantic westerly winds (autumn–spring) and the strengthening of easterly flows (summer) are key drivers of future projections.

Economic analysis of wind-powered crop drying. Final report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Potential applications of wind energy include not only large central turbines that can be utilized by utilities, but also dispersed systems for farms and other applications. The US Departments of Energy (DOE) and Agriculture (USDA) currently are establishing the feasibility of wind energy use in applications where the energy can be used as available, or stored in a simple form. These applications include production of hot water for rural sanitation, heating and cooling of rural structures and products, drying agricultural products, and irrigation. This study, funded by USDA, analyzed the economic feasibility of wind power in crop drying. Drying of corn, soybeans, rice, peanuts, tobacco, and dehydrated alfalfa were addressed.

Wind power in electricity markets: key issues and challenges  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Due to the large penetration and continuous improvement in the wind power technology, wind farms are asked to operate similar to the conventional power plants. In emerging electricity market, wind power generators are now seen differently and should sustain with/without limited government support. Although cost reductions due to technological improvements bring wind power in competitions to conventional fossil-fuel generation, but until now various incentives are required to overcome wind power's cost disadvantage and these incentives may play a significant role in improving the competitiveness of wind power. However, the use and trade of wind power in the market is complicated because of the lack of guarantees of generation, mainly in the wind farms. This paper discusses several key issues and challenges which can be faced by the wind power in the competitive power market. With suitable market mechanism, wind power can be helpful in mitigating the market abuse up to some extent.

Economic evaluation of demand response in power systems with high wind power penetration  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The penetration of wind power generation is expected to increase in power systems dramatically. The unpredictable nature of the wind generation poses an obstacle to high penetration of wind energy in the electric power systems. Demand response (DR) may be considered as an efficient approach to cope with the energy unbalances caused by the wind power intermittency. Fair mechanism for pricing of the DR may increase the demand-side participation which consequently facilitates wind power integration in the power systems. This paper focuses on the economic evaluation of the DR according to its potential for mitigating the wind power forecast error in the power system operation. Demand increase similar to the demand curtailment is considered as a DR resource and evaluated in this paper. For this purpose first an insight is provided into the power system operation under the high wind power penetration with the aim of extracting the DR benefits. Based on the DR benefits a mathematical model is developed to find the maximum monetary incentive for the DR that the system operator is willing to pay to the DR providers. In the proposed model DR's potential in reducing the cost of supplying load as well as its capability in reducing the cost of system reserve start up and shut down of units load shedding and wind power spillage are considered. The results of the proposed evaluation method provide valuable information for both the system operator and demand response providers. The proposed method is implemented on an example and a realistic case study and discussions on results are presented.

WinDS is a multiregional, multitime-period, Geographic Information System (GIS), and linear programming model of capacity expansion in the electric sector of the United States. WinDS is designed to address the principal market issues related to the penetration of wind energy technologies into the electric sector. These principal market issues include access to and cost of transmission, and the intermittency of wind power. WinDS has been used to model the impact of various policy initiatives, including a wind production tax credit (PTC) and a renewable portfolio standard (RPS).

Wind Power Plant Voltage Stability Evaluation: Preprint  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Voltage stability refers to the ability of a power system to maintain steady voltages at all buses in the system after being subjected to a disturbance from a given initial operating condition. Voltage stability depends on a power system's ability to maintain and/or restore equilibrium between load demand and supply. Instability that may result occurs in the form of a progressive fall or rise of voltages of some buses. Possible outcomes of voltage instability are the loss of load in an area or tripped transmission lines and other elements by their protective systems, which may lead to cascading outages. The loss of synchronism of some generators may result from these outages or from operating conditions that violate a synchronous generator's field current limit, or in the case of variable speed wind turbine generator, the current limits of power switches. This paper investigates the impact of wind power plants on power system voltage stability by using synchrophasor measurements.

Feasibility Study of Wind Energy Potential for Electricity Generation in the Northwestern Coast of Senegal  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The aim of this paper is to determine the wind energy potential for electricity generation in the northwestern coast of Senegal. The wind characteristics and wind energy potential in eight sites (Kayar, Potou, Gandon, Sakhor, Sine Moussa Abdou, Botla, Dara Andal and Nguebeul) are analyzed using the wind speed data collected during a period of one year for each site. The annual mean wind speed and the power density were computed. Results obtained show that the annual mean wind speed varies between 5.28 m/s in Potou (at 30 m) and 3.10 m/s in Dara Andal (at 7 m). The corresponding power density varies between 120.01W/m2 and 30.05 W/m2 respectively. A technical assessment of electricity generation from three big wind turbines and from three small wind turbines was carried out. Results show that the highest capacity factor was 39% observed in Sokhar for the wind turbine Yellow- Sand, whereas the lowest capacity factor was 5% in Gandon for the wind turbine Ecotecnia 80. The highest output energy was 4,517,900k Wh/year in Sokhar for the wind turbine Repower, while the lowest output energy was 312 kWh/year observed in Gandon for the wind turbine Inclin 600.

A novel dual stator-winding induction generator system applied in wind power generation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents a novel usage of 6/3-phase dual stator-winding induction generator (DWIG) with a static excitation power controller (SEC) as a wind power generator. This generator is composed of a standard squirrel-cage rotor and two sets of winding housed in the stator slots. One is referred to as the 6-phase power winding, and the other is defined as the 3-phase control winding. On the basis of the instantaneous power theory, the control mechanism of DWIG wind power system is analysed, and the control winding flux orientation control strategy is obtained consequently. The simulation and experimental results from a prototype of 18 kW 6/3-phase DWIG wind power system are presented to verify the correctness and feasibility of control strategy, and a desirable performance is implemented.

Validation of Power Output for the WIND Toolkit  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Renewable energy integration studies require wind data sets of high quality with realistic representations of the variability, ramping characteristics, and forecast performance for current wind power plants. The Wind Integration National Data Set (WIND) Toolkit is meant to be an update for and expansion of the original data sets created for the weather years from 2004 through 2006 during the Western Wind and Solar Integration Study and the Eastern Wind Integration Study. The WIND Toolkit expands these data sets to include the entire continental United States, increasing the total number of sites represented, and it includes the weather years from 2007 through 2012. In addition, the WIND Toolkit has a finer resolution for both the temporal and geographic dimensions. Three separate data sets will be created: a meteorological data set, a wind power data set, and a forecast data set. This report describes the validation of the wind power data set.

Ethiopia from RisoeDTU Ethiopia from RisoeDTU Dataset Summary Description (Abstract): These data are results from the KAMM/WASP studies for Ethiopia. The KAMM/WAsP methodology uses a set of wind classes to represent wind conditions for the mapped region. A mesoscale simulation for each wind class, using KAMM (Karlsruhe Mesoscale Model), is performed and statistics performed on the model output. The results are a summary of the simulated wind climate, and ii.a wind atlas, a summary of the wind climate standardized to flat, uniform roughness terrain. (Purpose): The product is intended to be used to estimate the wind resource potential in the country including the spatial variability. This map covers regions where long term measurements are not available. In a sense this is the point of the mapping exercise, but it also means that verification of results has not been as complete would be ideal. There is some concern that the results may underestimate the resource. However, new measurement data is coming and revisions to the map may be made if necessary as verification is carried out.

Has the turning point of China?s wind power industry really come?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract China?s wind power industry experienced rapid growth before 2009. However, the growing rate slowed down and the problem of wind curtailment was serious recent years. This paper focuses on the analysis of the turning point of China?s wind power industry combing with life circle theory. With a panoramic view of status quo, based on the resource endowment, capacity development and future trends, we draw the following conclusions: (1) China?s potential wind power reserves are still rich and the development of wind power industry will sustain growth for some period in the future. (2) As for market structure aspect, oligopolistic characteristic of China?s wind power market is still obvious. The market share of China?s wind power generation is not very high enough in the total generation market. (3) Turning point of China?s wind power industry has not come yet and the slowing down of development speed at present is mainly caused by inappropriate government intervention. It is estimated the turning point of wind power industry will come around 2020.

Sound?Power Production in Wind Instruments  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents data for output sound powerP O of wind instruments relation to input power P I supplied by the player. P I was calculated as pV? where p equals mouth pressure and V? air flow rate through the instrument. P O was calculated from sound?pressure level and measurements of reverberation time in a live room of known volume. A part of the data was obtained in a room of unknown characteristics; from 15 comparable measurements on 8 different instruments in both the live and the unknown room data were obtained that allowed calculation of P O also from other experiments in the unknown room. Measurements were made on single notes played both pp and ff on each instrument; one low and one high note on the scale of each instrument were chosen. The ratio P O/P I representing the mechanical efficiency of wind instruments as sources of sound power varies from less than 0.001% to about 2%. It appears to increase with increasing P I and in some instruments with frequency. The consistent results obtained for 3 different flutes played by one performer suggest that the variability noted in the other data at least partially reflects individual differences in mechanical efficiency.

Use of wind power forecasting in operational decisions.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The rapid expansion of wind power gives rise to a number of challenges for power system operators and electricity market participants. The key operational challenge is to efficiently handle the uncertainty and variability of wind power when balancing supply and demand in ths system. In this report, we analyze how wind power forecasting can serve as an efficient tool toward this end. We discuss the current status of wind power forecasting in U.S. electricity markets and develop several methodologies and modeling tools for the use of wind power forecasting in operational decisions, from the perspectives of the system operator as well as the wind power producer. In particular, we focus on the use of probabilistic forecasts in operational decisions. Driven by increasing prices for fossil fuels and concerns about greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, wind power, as a renewable and clean source of energy, is rapidly being introduced into the existing electricity supply portfolio in many parts of the world. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has analyzed a scenario in which wind power meets 20% of the U.S. electricity demand by 2030, which means that the U.S. wind power capacity would have to reach more than 300 gigawatts (GW). The European Union is pursuing a target of 20/20/20, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 20%, increase the amount of renewable energy to 20% of the energy supply, and improve energy efficiency by 20% by 2020 as compared to 1990. Meanwhile, China is the leading country in terms of installed wind capacity, and had 45 GW of installed wind power capacity out of about 200 GW on a global level at the end of 2010. The rapid increase in the penetration of wind power into power systems introduces more variability and uncertainty in the electricity generation portfolio, and these factors are the key challenges when it comes to integrating wind power into the electric power grid. Wind power forecasting (WPF) is an important tool to help efficiently address this challenge, and significant efforts have been invested in developing more accurate wind power forecasts. In this report, we document our work on the use of wind power forecasting in operational decisions.

Emerald PUD Wind Power Solicitation Emerald PUD Wind Power Solicitation June 20, 2003 Background: Emerald is interested in purchasing wind power through a Purchase Power Agreement or through ownership. While our aim is to gain the cost advantage of the PTC or REPI, we are concerned that REPI with its current configuration and funding level may be risky and may not add equivalent value over the life of the project. We are interested in proposals that can begin to deliver wind power now or within the next couple of years. Our thinking is that our wind power would come from part of larger wind project, thus gaining the economies of scale. If a PPA is proposed, we are interested in an ownership option at the end of the contract term, and ask that PPA proposers discuss this option in as much detail

Life cycle cost analysis of wind power considering stochastic uncertainties  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper presents a long-term cost analysis of wind power and compares its competitiveness to non-renewable generating technologies. The analysis considers several important attributes related to wind intermittency that are sometimes ignored in traditional generation planning or LCOE (levelized cost of energy) studies, including the need for more nameplate capacity due to intermittency, hourly fluctuations in wind outputs and cost for reserves. The competitiveness of wind power is assessed by evaluating four scenarios: 1) adding natural gas generating capacity to the power grid; 2) adding coal generating capacity to the power grid; 3) adding wind capacity to the power grid; and, 4) adding wind capacity and energy storage to the power grid where an energy storage device is used to cover wind intermittency. A case study in the state of Michigan is presented to demonstrate the use of the proposed methodology, in which a time horizon from 2010 to 2040 is considered. The results show that wind energy will still be more expensive than natural gas power plants in the next three decades, but will be cheaper than coal capacities if wind intermittency is mitigated. Furthermore, if the costs of carbon emissions and environmental externalities are considered, wind generation will be a competitive option for grid capacity expansion.

A stochastic framework for the grid integration of wind power using flexible load approach  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Wind power integration has always been a key research area due to the green future power system target. However, the intermittent nature of wind power may impose some technical and economic challenges to Independent System Operators (ISOs) and increase the need for additional flexibility. Motivated by this need, this paper focuses on the potential of Demand Response Programs (DRPs) as an option to contribute to the flexible operation of power systems. On this basis, in order to consider the uncertain nature of wind power and the reality of electricity market, a Stochastic Network Constrained Unit Commitment associated with DR (SNCUCDR) is presented to schedule both generation units and responsive loads in power systems with high penetration of wind power. Afterwards, the effects of both price-based and incentive-based \\{DRPs\\} are evaluated, as well as DR participation levels and electricity tariffs on providing a flexible load profile and facilitating grid integration of wind power. For this reason, novel quantitative indices for evaluating flexibility are defined to assess the success of \\{DRPs\\} in terms of wind integration. Sensitivity studies indicate that DR types and customer participation levels are the main factors to modify the system load profile to support wind power integration.

Sound propagation from wind power projects can be modeled in the same manner as other more common outdoor noisesources but are these models suited to wind turbines' uniquely high source heights operating under high wind conditions and various degrees of terrain ruggedness. In "Propagation Modeling Parameters for Wind Turbines" (K. Kaliski and E. Duncan Proceedings of Institute of Noise ControlEngineers NOISECON 2007) the effects of ground attenuation and various adjustments for wind conditions on sound propagationmodeling were discussed. This paper continues the discussion and explores the accuracy of existing sound propagationmodeling methods for wind power projects including ISO 9613 and other standards. Model data for wind power projects and the implications of various terrain and ground coverage will be discussed.

GHG emissions and energy performance of offshore wind power  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper presents specific life cycle GHG emissions from wind power generation from six different 5 MW offshore wind turbine conceptual designs. In addition, the energy performance, expressed by the energy indicators Energy Payback Ratio (EPR) Energy Payback Time (EPT), is calculated for each of the concepts. There are currently few LCA studies in existence which analyse offshore wind turbines with rated power as great as 5 MW. The results, therefore, give valuable additional environmental information concerning large offshore wind power. The resulting GHG emissions vary between 18 and 31.4 g CO2-equivalents per kWh while the energy performance, assessed as EPR and EPT, varies between 7.5 and 12.9, and 1.6 and 2.7 years, respectively. The relatively large ranges in GHG emissions and energy performance are chiefly the result of the differing steel masses required for the analysed platforms. One major conclusion from this study is that specific platform/foundation steel masses are important for the overall GHG emissions relating to offshore wind power. Other parameters of importance when comparing the environmental performance of offshore wind concepts are the lifetime of the turbines, wind conditions, distance to shore, and installation and decommissioning activities. Even though the GHG emissions from wind power vary to a relatively large degree, wind power can fully compete with other low GHG emission electricity technologies, such as nuclear, photovoltaic and hydro power.

Modeling the Benefits of Storage Technologies to Wind Power  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Rapid expansion of wind power in the electricity sector is raising questions about how wind resource variability might affect the capacity value of wind farms at high levels of penetration. Electricity storage, with the capability to shift wind energy from periods of low demand to peak times and to smooth fluctuations in output, may have a role in bolstering the value of wind power at levels of penetration envisioned by a new Department of Energy report ('20% Wind by 2030, Increasing Wind Energy's Contribution to U.S. Electricity Supply'). This paper quantifies the value storage can add to wind. The analysis was done employing the Regional Energy Deployment System (ReEDS) model, formerly known as the Wind Deployment System (WinDS) model. ReEDS was used to estimate the cost and development path associated with 20% penetration of wind in the report. ReEDS differs from the WinDS model primarily in that the model has been modified to include the capability to build and use three storage technologies: pumped-hydroelectric storage (PHS), compressed-air energy storage (CAES), and batteries. To assess the value of these storage technologies, two pairs of scenarios were run: business-as-usual, with and without storage; 20% wind energy by 2030, with and without storage. This paper presents the results from those model runs.

System-wide emissions implications of increased wind power penetration.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper discusses the environmental effects of incorporating wind energy into the electric power system. We present a detailed emissions analysis based on comprehensive modeling of power system operations with unit commitment and economic dispatch for different wind penetration levels. First, by minimizing cost, the unit commitment model decides which thermal power plants will be utilized based on a wind power forecast, and then, the economic dispatch model dictates the level of production for each unit as a function of the realized wind power generation. Finally, knowing the power production from each power plant, the emissions are calculated. The emissions model incorporates the effects of both cycling and start-ups of thermal power plants in analyzing emissions from an electric power system with increasing levels of wind power. Our results for the power system in the state of Illinois show significant emissions effects from increased cycling and particularly start-ups of thermal power plants. However, we conclude that as the wind power penetration increases, pollutant emissions decrease overall due to the replacement of fossil fuels.

Evaluation of wind energy potential and electricity generation at five locations in Jordan  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Evaluation of the wind power from the knowledge of the mean monthly wind speeds of a typical year, and for five different locations in Jordan is analyzed and assessed. In addition, an investigation into the feasibility of using five different wind turbines of different rated power ranging from 100 kW to 3000 kW at each location to be employed in wind farms is examined. The data of the wind speeds over five years are fitted to the Weibull distribution, which is most frequently used and most appropriate, describing frequency distribution for wind moving over Jordan. The annual mean values of the wind speed and the frequency distributions were found for the five locations studied; Ras-Moneef, Azraq south; Safawi, Queen Alia Airport and Aqaba Airport. The locations included the eastern desert regions where wide plain lands are economically feasible to be used for wind farms. It is apparent from the results of the analysis that the highly promising sites of having good wind energy potential are Aqaba and Ras-Moneef, whereas, the desert sites of Safawi and Azraq South have only moderate potential and Queen Alia Airport have a lower potential. The annual mean values of the wind speed and power density of the observed and theoretical distributions are 5.5 ms?1 and 160 Wm?2 for Ras Moneef, 4.0 ms?1 and 175 Wm?2 for Azraq South, 4.5 ms?1 and 94 Wm?2 for Safawi, 3.13 ms?1 and 31 Wm?2 for Queen Alia Airport and 6.0 ms?1 and 215 Wm?2 for Aqaba Airport, respectively.

Practical method for estimating wind characteristics at potential wind-energy-conversion sites  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Terrain features and variations in the depth of the atmospheric boundary layer produce local variations in wind, and these variations are not depicted well by standard weather reports. A method is developed to compute local winds for use in estimating the wind energy available at any potential site for a wind turbine. The method uses the terrain heights for an area surrounding the site and a series of wind and pressure reports from the nearest four or five national Weather Service stations. An initial estimate of the winds in the atmospheric boundary layer is made, then these winds are adjusted to satisfy the continuity equation. In this manner the flow is made to reflect the influences of the terrain and the shape of the boundary-layer top. This report describes in detail the methodology and results, and provides descriptions of the computer programs, instructions for using them, and complete program listings.

Life cycle assessment of CO2 emissions from wind power plants: Methodology and case studies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Wind energy plays an increasingly important role in the world’s electricity market with rapid growth projected in the future. In order to evaluate the potential for wind energy to mitigate the effects of climate change by reducing CO2 intensity of the energy sector, this study developed a new direct and simple method for estimating CO2 emissions per kWh produced during the life cycle of four representative wind power plants (three in developed countries and one in China). The life cycle analysis focuses on the wind power plant as the basic functional object instead of a single wind turbine. Our results show that present-day wind power plants have a lifetime emission intensity of 5.0–8.2 g CO2/kWh electricity, a range significantly lower than estimates in previous studies. Our estimate suggests that wind is currently the most desirable renewable energy in terms of minimizing CO2 emissions per kWh of produced electricity. The production phase contributes the most to overall CO2 emissions, while recycling after decommission could reduce emissions by nearly half, representing an advantage of wind when compared with other energy generation technologies such as nuclear. Compared with offshore wind plants, onshore plants have lower CO2 emissions per kWh electricity and require less transmission infrastructure. Analysis of a case in China indicates that a large amount of CO2 emissions could be saved in the transport phase in large countries by using shorter alternative routes of transportation. As the world’s fastest growing market for wind power, China could potentially save 780 Mtons of CO2 emissions annually by 2030 with its revised wind development target. However, there is still ample room for even more rapid development of wind energy in China, accompanied by significant opportunities for reducing overall CO2 emissions.
