Potentiometric analysis of wind energy to determine the optimum location for wind turbines in Mazandaran province
Today, the use of new energies is due to the abundance Renewable, clean, high efficiency, and economical use of fossil fuels have been of interest to various countries around the world.Wind energy is due to its becoming mechanical or electrical energy and its special position in renewable energy, an alternative to fossil fuels and its preservation for the next generation. The purpose of this study is to analyze wind energy and its potential estimation to determine the proper location for wind turbines in susceptible and windy areas of Mazandaran province. For this purpose, by collecting wind speed data, 5 synoptic stations of the province during The statistical years (2006-2009), which were recorded at 3-hour intervals at a height of 10 meters, were used. The velocity and direction of the wind, as well as the parameters of its probability distribution function were determined and then the wind power potential and density of the stations in the province. The velocity and direction of the wind, as well as the parameters of ‘Weibull’ density Function” were determined and then the wind power potential and density of the stations in the province Were calculated. In this research, the windroperator software was used to analyze wind energy and graph and graph diagrams. Finally, using the GIS software, digital maps and zoning of speed indicators And wind energy was plotted.The results show that among the stations in the province, the Balade -Nour Station has a high wind power density and wind power of 300 W / m2. Therefore, it is a good place to install wind turbines to extract energy, Especially in the warm seasons in the province.
Keywords: wind energy potential, zoning, wind turbines, Mazandaran province.
