Case Studies of Small Wind Applications

M.H. Alzoubi

In the final chapter, case studies are presented where the application of small-scale wind power solutions is evaluated. In total, eight cases are described that range from small to medium size. They include both on- and off-grid applications in developed and developing locations around the globe. The author provides a background for each case study that motivates the wind-power application. Design specifications are given and a match between the design and the energy requirement is made. Economic analysis is included when available. Readers can use the experience outline in this chapter to assess the potential of future small-scale wind installations.
