A guideline for utility-scale onshore wind farms distribution in Tunisia
MetadataShow full item record
Wind energy, as a component of the green transition has been given a lot of attention in theTunisia since 2000. Moreover, the good wind energy potential is one of the motivations to develop the wind energy sector in the country,with a surface of 163,610 km² ,has an important air density and wind speed are important in the North and East seaside region . The proposed project aimed to advice on the effective distribution of wind farms while considering the following aspect: the land availability, the terrain topology, the weather surveys and the national electrical grid balanceAccording to the criteria we set up, we could identify seven suitable area for wind farms activities namely :distributed in the north and the costal areas The results of the simulation using WindPro show that the most favorable and suitable site for wind farm implementation is in Kelibia with a capacity factor of 20% and annual energy 58,6 GWh/y.
