Paper Abstract

The objectives of this study are to survey the literature regarding energy evaluation and find optimal solution based on models and experimental set-up's for small and medium home in Alba area. Wind resource evaluation is a critical element in projecting turbine performance at a given site. The energy available in a wind stream is proportional to the cube of its speed, which means that doubling the wind speed increases the available energy by a factor of eight. Furthermore, the wind resource itself is seldom a steady, consistent flow. It varies with the time of day, season, height above ground, and type of terrain. Proper siting in windy locations, away from large obstructions, enhances a wind turbine's performance. We used our measured data in 2 locations around our town and with this data inserted in some Matlab models we intend to build optimal experimental solution for produced home's generator's, around Alba town, up to 5 kW.
