Abstract

In this study, a handy quick estimate of expected power and cost of micro-scale generation wind turbines is generated for the purpose of simplifying and facilitating the deal of non-specialists with the sophisticated technicalities of micro-scale generation wind turbines technologies and terminologies. Several small-scale wind turbines are examined such as rotor diameter, cut-in velocity and rated power versus the various wind velocities of the intended place of wind turbine installation. The user of this estimate needs to identify only two issues which are the required power in kW to be generated by micro-scale wind turbine and the annual mean wind velocity at expected height of installation of the turbines of the location of energy demand, knowing that Micro-scale wind turbines can be roof mounted and/or tower mounted. The user of this estimate would be able to select easily the wind turbine(s) power capacity, number of wind turbines to fulfil his energy demand, guidance estimate of related costs, associated with that the turbine cutin velocity, rotor diameter which gives an indication of the space would be required for wind turbines would This estimate was based on utilising the Weibull statistical method, which offers three scenarios of power generation. Those scenarios are i) Optimistic, ii) most likely iii) pessimistic. This estimate is considered a friendly guide of micro-scale wind turbines to nonspecialists for residential, educational and small commercial applications.
