Abstract

The wind energy is one of the most significant and rapidly developing renewable energy sources in

the world and it provides a clean energy resource, which is a promising alternative in the short term in

Algeria. The main purpose of this paper is to discuss the wind potential in Sahara site of Algeria and to

perform an investigation on the wind power potential of desert of Algeria. The Weibull density function

has been used to estimate the monthly power wind density and to determine the characteristics of monthly

parameters of Weibull. A simulation model has been established to describe the characteristics of a

particular wind turbine. The monthly power generated and the monthly operating hours by the wind

turbine to be simulated. The simulation based on the data wind speed measured at the 10th meters and

source of energy in the world and wind power is one of the most widely used alternative

sources[1].The distribution of wind speeds is important for the desing of wind farms, power generators

and agricultural applications such as the irrigation. It is not easy task to choose a site for a wind turbine

because many factors have to be taken into account[1] . Compared to the other renewable energy

resources, such as tidal or solar energy, wind energy has a more variable and diffuses energy flux. In

order to maximise the benefit of this resource it is very important to be able to describe the variation of

wind velocity at any given site under consideration for the development of WECTS.[2].The variation of

wind velocity using the Weibull two parameter density function .

There are several methods to calculate the two Weibull parameters, c, and k such as the maximum

likelihood method, the proposed modified maximum likelihood method and the commonly used graphical

method [3-4]. Here the Weibull density function is used.

Algeria has a vast uninhabited land area where the south (desert) represents the part with considerable

wind regime [5].

In Algeria, work on wind energy resource assessment dates back to 1976 when a wind atlas was

developed by using wind speed data from 20 locations [6]. This atlas presented the monthly mean wind

speed contour end frequency distribution for all the months during the year.

Dahbi and all [7] calculated the monthly and seasonally Weibull parameters for Bechar’s site at 10m

and found that the wind speed was well represented by the Weibull distribution function, based on wind

speed data measured at 10 m height and collected along 12 years by the Algerian Meteorological Office.

This Paper present the monthly wind speed and wind power density to assess the wind power potential

for the Sahara site of Algeria (South Western of Algeria). The Weibull density function has been used to

estimate the two monthly Weibull parameters, c, and k.

The monthly power output of a wind turbine and the monthly operating hours for BWC XL.1 1KW

wind turbine are calculated. Simulation is performed using Matlab software environment.

parameter and k is the dimensionless Weibull shape parameter.

182 M. Dahbi et al. / Energy Procedia 36 (2013) 179 – 188

Basically , the scale parameter, c indicates how ‘windy’ a wind location under consideration is,

whereas the shape parameter, k , indicates how peaked the wind distrubution is (i.e. if the wind speeds

tend to be very close to a certain value, the distribution will have a high k value and be very peaked)[9-

10].

Once the mean speed v 2

The main limitation of the Weibull density function is that it does not accurately represent the

probabilities of observing zero or very low wind speeds [10].Nevertheless, Persaud et al.[11] propose an

alternative hybrid Weibull function as well as referring to the Dirac Dalta function allowing for

probabilistic assessment of zero and low wind speeds.

As different generators have different power output performance curves, so the model used to describe

the performance is also different .In literature [13-14], the following equation is used to simulate the

power output of wind turbine:

Where PR is the rated electrical power ; vc is the cut-in wind speed; v R is the rated wind speed ;

vF is the cut-off wind speed of the wind turbine; k is the Weibull shape parameter.

The cumulative distribution function can be used for estimating the time for which wind is within a

certain velocity interval. The monthly operating hours in a year can be calculated like follow [15]:

Where vc is the cut-in speed, v F is the cut-of speed, tm is the monthly hours number (30

The Adrar(South West Algerian) in new valley was selected as the site under consideration in this

work since is the second largest province in Algeria, with an area of 427,368 km². It is composed of

299ksour [16]. It is based around an oasis of the Sahara Desert .

A meteorological data collected during 8760hours by a wind observation station web site weather

underground (The global whether data could be obtained from internet ) is used for analysis in this paper.

The calculation results meet the Weibull distribution. From the recorded wind data , the shape

parameter k is found to be 2.08, and the scale parameter c is 6.66m/s using Equ.1-3.The distribution is

shown in fig1.

Wind speeed (m/s)

Once the monthly mean wind speed and the variance are known, the monthly probability density can

be obtained, as shown in table 1. The results show that the parameters are distinctive for different months

in a year, which means the monthly wind speed distribution differs over a whole year. It is clear that the

mean wind speed increases during spring months and decrease during Autumns months. For comparison,

tow typical monthly Weibull distribution with different shape and scale parameters are given in fig.2. It is

clear from the figure that the value of c is low in September and most of the wind speeds are in the lower

speed range, but in June the value is highest.

Wind Speed (m/s)

Using Eq.(5), the average annual wind power density is found as 231w/m^2 , so that the power

potential is 1774.08 kWh/m2 per year . With the above equation and the monthly Weibull parameters,

the monthly wind power density can also be calculated. The results are given in fig.3 and tabl.1

It is clear from the results that the mean wind speed and average wind power density are distinctive for

different months. In February to June, the wind power is high, but low in the autumn months. The tow

curves have similar changing trend, but the rate of change is not the same. This is because, for the power

density, it is determined not only by the mean speed bat also by the Weibull shape parameter k.

Month

To analysis the effect of the wind turbine characteristics on the wind power generation, a wind turbine

of BWC XL.1 1KW generator with a synchronous permanent magnets machine is chosen in this study

based on the calculated monthly mean wind speed (is high to 2.5 and low to 13m/s). The cut-in speed is

2.5m/s , the cut-off speed is 13m/s and the rated electrical power of the turbine is 1kW(at rated wind

speed 11m/s).Using the eq.6 and Eq.7 ,the average monthly power generated by the wind turbine and the

operating hours of the wind turbine in a year can be calculated, as shown in fig .4. it is clear from the

figure that the operating hours changes in different months. The highest 690h occurs in December, while

the lowest is 527h in September. The total operating hours of the Adrar site are 7621h in a year .the trend

is not in accordance with the trend of monthly wind power density, because the operating hours is

determined not only the wind data distribution but also by the performance of the wind turbine. For

different months, the monthly power generated is calculated and the results are given in fig4.The results

shows that for each month the power generated is different , varying from 113.54 W to 370.58W .The

highest power output is generated in June , while the lowest in September. The wind turbine can generate

electrical power in the site of Adrar amounting to 78410W (1559.400kWh) per year. The trend is similar

to that for power density, but with some difference. This is because the power generated by a wind

turbine is determined not only by the wind speed’s Weibull function (parameters c and k),but also by the

characteristics of wind turbines, while power density is determined only by the weibull distribution (c

and k).

Conclusion

The proposed simulation model is found applicable for assessing the potential of wind power

generation at a location. From the case study, it is found that it is imperative to account for the monthly

difference of wind speed using Weibull estimation as the wind energy potential can vary significantly.

According to result’s of simulation, it is shown that the parameters of Weibull influence directly the wind

power available like over the duration of production of electrical energy . In June, the wind power

available in 428 W/m2with one duration of availability of 21 h per day. In September, the wind power

available is 128 W/m2with one duration of availability of 17h per day.

In the case of Adrar, it is fortunate that the windy season coincides with the high temperature seasons

(45°-55°) which causes an increased demand for electricity could be covered by exploitation of wind

energy. Therefore, accurate wind predictability and its correlation with electricity load demand may allow

for a high penetration of wind energy and could make it an economically attractive supplement to diesel-

fuelled power station.

It is recommended to undertake further studies to explore other locations in the Sahara of Algeria

and to develop this renewable energy resource.
