Abstract:

This work is an analysis of wind characteristics of wind site Motha, near Chikhaldara, district Amaravati in the state of Maharashtra during. One windmast of 25 m height located on the site recorded the wind speed data and wind direction for this region. The main emphasis of this research work is to study the average wind power density (WPD), mean annual wind speed, most frequently observed wind speed, rated wind speed, wind energy density, rated wind power density and the capacity factor of the site. Energy analysis method was used out to find out these parameters. It was found that mean average wind speed of the site came to 5.85 m/s, with the average wind power density nearly 191 W/ m2. Wind energy density was found 1693.23 kwh/ m2. Rated power generation capacity of the site was found to be 686.58 W/m2 at which rated wind speed was 10.39 m/s. The most prominent factor in the wind potential analysis i.e., capacity factor of the wind site evaluated to be 28.15 per cent. The Weibull factor of the frequency distribution shape factor (k) and scale factor (c) came to be 1.17 and 6.27 respectively.
