Wind Energy Financial Model with Stochastic (Probabilistic) Wind Turbine Simulator for Annual Power Output and Capacity Factor

Wind Energy Financial Model with Stochastic (Probabilistic) Wind Turbine Simulator for Annual Power Output and Capacity Factor

Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) is the current darling of the renewable energy power generation industry.

It is clean, generally available, and cost-effective. It’s power output, however, is very variable, ever changing by the hour with time.

Now with the instantaneous wind speed as a function of the average speed +/- the positive and negative deviation multiplied by a random fraction, the probable wind speed and thus the power output can be simulated, and when aggregated in 24 x 365 hours in a year, the annual energy output and annual capacity factor is determined.

And using statistical analysis, the expected value (mean), standard error, median, standard deviation, variance, skewness and Kurtosis are calculated for both the annual energy output and annual capacity factor. More »

How to Design a Mini-Hydro Power Plant – Copy

Here is the article (minus the tables, pictures and graphs):

Since time immemorial, the earth has been blessed with an endless cycle of rain falling from the sky, onto the watershed, flowing as run-off into the rivers, lakes, groundwater, and finally into the oceans where it picks up the Sun’s limitless energy to evaporate again and join the clouds, only to be cooled by the shadow of the earth as cold winds precipitate the saturated vapors that falls again to repeat the cycle.

Mini-Hydro Model with CDM

Here is a sample of a project finance model for a mini-hydro power plant using the Clean Development Mechanism principles, i.e. no escalation, no taxes and government imposts and around 15% p.a. return on investment, and 100% owners’ equity only (no leveraging with cheap debt).

The CDM analyses the economics purely on the technical and economic performance of the technology (capacity, reliability, availability, efficiency, capital cost, and operating & maintenance costs). More »

In addition to the worksheets found in the ADV models of the regulator, 5 additional tabs or worksheets have been added (Capex, Opex, Revenues, Project IRR and Sensitivity) into the CDM model which is a financial evaluation without taxes (that distort the economic and technical performance) and debt (pure equity investment). For the RE project to benefit from CDM credits, the project IRR should not be more than 15% p.a.

Wind energy is most available in countries within the 40 deg North latitude and 40 deg South latitude. It can be harnessed using giant wind turbines that when connected together in a wind farm can provide utility scale capacities of 2.0 MW per turbine and with 15 turbines, could produce 30 MW of power in a given wind farm.

Mini-hydro or run-of-river system is carried out mostly in the mountains where a slowly snaking terrain will lend itself to conveying the water via a canal headrace with minimal head loss and then dropping the water head thru the penstock to the power turbines and exiting to the tailrace to rejoin the river flow. As such, it does not need a dam but rather a diversion weir to divert water to the canal headrace. More »
