Estimation of Electric Power Generation in Libya Using Processing Technology of Wind Energy (Sirte Case study)
Keywords:Sirte, mean wind speed, wind data analysis, wind statistics, Profitability, Measurement
Based on information regarding every aspect of the project's execution and operation, the estimation of wind characteristics is thought of as the first crucial stage in evaluating a wind energy project. Therefore, in order to choose the appropriate wind turbine for a given zone and to precisely predict its performance, extensive understanding of the wind is required.
The mean wind speed, directional information, fluctuations in the mean in the short term, daily, monthly, and annual variations, and variations with height are only a few of the elements that need to be known about the wind. These parameters are incredibly site-specific, and their accuracy can only be ascertained by measurements taken at a single place over an adequate amount of time. The study of wind energy and wind evaluation at a few chosen locations (Sirte City and Qaser AbuHadi) is presented in this paper, together with background information on wind power and its resource and an analysis of the available data from the representative meteorological station Sirte.
The wind data has been adjusted for each location to reflect the real wind speed at hub height. For each site, calculations are made to determine the mean wind speed, Weibull distribution, annual energy, and annual capacity factor.
