Analysis of the Generated Output Energy by Different Types of Wind Turbines

Fouad Alhajj Hassan, Malek Mahmoud, Omar A. M. Almohammed


This study intends to analyse the generated individual output energy by different types of wind turbines. Focusing on estimating the total energy output generated by a wind farm utilizing three distinct wind turbines, Siemens Gamesa SG 3.4-132, Vesatas HTq V126, and Lagerwey L100, with rated powers of 3.465 MW, 3.45 MW, and 2.5 MW respectively. Sixty turbines of each type will be installed at the elevations of 97 m, 87 m, and 99 m consecutively. For the purpose of the study, the Sorochi Gory region was chosen as an eligible location for the farm due to its physiographic location and desirable forestry. A virtual experiment will be conducted by testing different possible wind turbine configurations and calculating their gross energy output, considering the output wind speed is in the ideal case, while the output energy includes the wake effect, using WindFarmer analyst software. Then, the results will be presented, including the optimal wind turbine configuration for the wind farm, in terms of efficiency, stability, and economy.
