how wind is converted to power
How wind is converted to power?
  • A wind turbine obtains its power input by converting the force of the wind into a torque (turning force) acting on the rotor blades
  • The amount of energy which the wind transfers to the rotor depends
    • on the density of the air
    • the rotor area
    • and the wind speed.
  • In other words you can get more energy:
    • the "heavier" the air
    • the “bigger” the rotor
    • the “higher” the wind speed

Wind Resources in Pakistan
  • The project area for the wind mapping was 1,100km along Sindh and Balochistan coast and up to 100km deep northward over land from the coast.
  • 44 stations for collecting wind data have been installed to study the wind regime as shown in figures.

wind speed
Wind speed
  • The wind speed is extremely important for the amount of energy a wind turbine can convert to electricity
  • The energy content of the wind varies with the cube (the third power) of the average wind speed
  • If the wind speed is twice as high it contains eight times as much energy

2³ = 2 x 2 x 2 =8

  • Wind measuring is important to get the real wind speed at the specific site
wind measuring
Wind measuring

The best way of measuring wind speeds at a prospective wind turbine site is to fit an anemometer to the top of a mast which has the same height as the expected hub height of the wind turbine to be used.

This way one avoids the uncertainty involved in recalculating the wind speeds to a different height.

By fitting the anemometer to the top of the mast one minimizes the disturbances of airflows from the mast itself.

If anemometers are placed on the side of the mast it is essential to place them in the prevailing wind direction in order to minimize the wind shade from the tower

selecting a wind turbine site
Selecting a Wind Turbine Site

Wind Conditions

Looking at nature itself is usually an excellent guide to finding a suitable WF site.

 trees and shrubs (wind direction)

 move along a rugged coastline (notice that centuries of erosion have worked in one particular direction)

 Meteorology data, ideally in terms of a wind rose calculated over 30 years is probably your best guide,

 Maybe wind turbines are already in the area

Grid Connection

Large WTG have to be connected to the electrical grid (10-30 kV)

Grid Reinforcement

The electrical grid near the WTG should be able to receive the electricity coming from the turbine.

Soil Conditions

Both the feasibility of building foundations of the turbines, and road construction to reach the site with heavy trucks must be taken into account with any wind turbine project.

Pitfalls in Using Meteorology Data

Precision measurement of wind speeds, and thus wind energy is not nearly as important for weather forecasting as it is for wind energy planning, however.

Wind speeds are heavily influenced by the surface roughness of the surrounding area, of nearby obstacles (such as trees, lighthouses or other buildings), and by the contours of the local terrain.

benefits of wind energy
Benefits of Wind Energy
  • Prices of fuel are expected to go up substantially in coming years
  • On a long term basis, costs of electricity from renewable sources are more predictable than thermal energy
  • Wind energy reduces cost of electricity now and in the future
  • Much lower external costs, and has the benefit of additional earnings from CO2 certificates
  • Wind is an indigenous resource. Does not require foreign exchange expenditure on import of fuel. Also adds security to countries energy mix. Long term supply of wind is assured
  • Is environmentally friendly. Very low external costs
  • AEDB has to developed a plan, that the federal goal of 10% of RE in 2015 can be reached
  • 1,800 – 2,700 MW Wind farms are planned till 2015
  • Annual installation of 200 – 380 MW
  • Government takes the “wind risk”

 project financing is possible

  • Land will be leased from Sindh Government to reasonable rates
  • No costs for the external grid connection
