Abstract :

The Renewable energy sources, especially wind turbine generators, are considered as important generation alternatives in electric power systems due to their non-exhausted nature and benign environmental effects [1]. The fact that wind power penetration continues to increase has motivated a need to develop more widely applicable methodologies for evaluating the actual benefits of adding wind turbines to conventional generating systems. In this paper reliability evaluation of wind power generation system is carried. Reliability evaluation of generating systems with wind energy sources is a complex process. It requires an accurate wind speed forecasting technique for the wind farm site. The method requires historical wind speed data collected over many years for the wind farm location to determine the necessary parameters of the wind speed models for the particular site [3]. The evaluation process should also accurately model the intermittent nature of power output from the wind farm. For the data analysis excel data analysis tool is used and probability distribution of wind speeds are calculated [10]. This study shows the system availability for the generation of power from wind turbine generators installed at the Hanamasagar, a village near Gajendragada of Karnataka State.
