## 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 »

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.

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.

This MTO first-year tariff for wind makes use of the basic assumptions of the country’s RE regulator for rated capacity (30 MW), capacity factor (25.8%), plant own use (5%), and transmission line loss (3%). More »
