Abstract

The objective of this work is to evaluate the wind resource on the site of Ain Salah, in Algeria. The hourly data used in this study span a period of 10 years. The parameters considered are the speed and direction of wind. The wind energy production was evaluated and an economic evaluation was conducted for wind farm (10MW) consisting of Twelve WGT 850 KW. The obtained results for the Weibull parameters was k = 2.48 and C = 6.0 m/s, at 10 m above the ground with an average wind speed of 5.4 m/s and the price per kW for our wind frame are 0.1603 USD/Kw.
