Abstract

This paper presents the optimal design and operation of Wind Energy System (WES) interconnected with Utility Grid (UG). Moreover, the paper introduces a proposed computer program to determine the optimal design of WES to be interconnected with UG. The proposed computer program has been designed to determine the optimum number of Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) needed to feed a certain load. Many WTG types have been introduced to the computer program to choose the best type of WTG. By using the proposed computer program, the WES components can be completely designed to be interconnected with UG. This program has a subroutine which by using it the optimum operation of WES can be determined hour by hour through the year. Then, the monthly surplus energy, monthly deficit energy and yearly purchase from UG or selling energy to UG can be estimated. The decision from the computer program is based on the minimum price of the generated kWh from the WES. The proposed computer program has been applied on two Egyptian sites. The first sit is Ras- Ghareb which located at the coast of the Red sea and the second site is Ras- EL-Hekma which located at the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
