Evaluation of Potential Wind Energy Sites in the Province of Essaouira in Morocco
This study has a main object to assess the wind potential of the site JBEL HDID to Essaouira. First, we give a brief overview on the current status of wind energy in the world and in Morocco. Initial lines of reflection lead us to develop a methodology for developing a wind farm. The implementation of this methodology will allow us to model the wind in three sites from the region, using data from the wind of the three masts from 10m installed on the region and data from nearby sites. Secondly, Measurements are taken over a one year cycle. Then they are compared with the data winds of a meteorological station chosen for the quality of his correlation with measurements registered during the year, and for which it is possible to back in time as long a period as possible, thus, we'll know by statistical formulas the measures of this year that will be representative of all years in this area. Finally, a comparison between the wind turbines from different manufacturers with various configurations, to make a preliminary design of the park and calculates electrical energy that can be produced by it.
