A methodology of wind turbines selection for the given wind conditions
The following paper presents a methodology of wind turbines selection with a axis of rotation based on measurements of wind conditions specific for the wind power sector. Basic properties and characteristics used in the wind power sector, as well as a proper measurement campaign along with determining the necessary instrumentation and the methodology of its use, are the basic parameters that determine the decision of wind farm investment. The main goal of those activities is to gather the accurate meteorological data in sufficient amount using a measurement tower situated at a possible future location of a wind farm. This method is used to identify the direction, speed, gust and energy of the wind. Measurements were made in northern Poland using a measurement system based on a 80-meter-high telescopic mast. The system was equipped with instrumentation necessary to measure and record the basic wind parameters, and was made by the Windhunter Serwis Ltd. Company headquartered in Koszalin. The reliability of measurements was verified using the statistical methods based on the Weitbull’s distribution and the windrose. Thus, the energy potential of the raw air stream was determined with a possible future use in a wind farm sitting.
