Week 14: Lab#12


  • To enumerate the main sources of wind and study the differences in wind velocity profile between onshore & offshore wind
  • To analyze some theoretical aspects of wind power generation
  • To study and understand the different operational regimes of a wind turbine, to quantify the dependency of the power produced with the wind speed, and to define & explain the notion of capacity factor
  • To compute the energy yield of a wind turbine based on its power curve and the wind characteristics, and to understand the concept of velocity deficit and its impact on wind farm layout
  • To understand how the energy captured from the wind is converted into electrical energy and fed into the electric power system
