A STUDY OF WIND POWERED TURBINE GENERATION

A STUDY OF WIND POWERED TURBINE GENERATION

ABSTRACT

The (PHCH) Power Holding Company of Nigeria Plc, effort to provide us with a regular power supply has not yet been achieved. And it is because of the search for another means of power generation that necessitated the development of wind turbine.

The wind energy is abundant in several parts. Among the numerous natural energy resources that Nigeria was blessed with, wind is among the once in great quantity. Wind can be used in conjunction with turbines to produce electricity in isolation to supply numerous consumers. The PHCN can as well use it to serve its customer be it commercial or residential load. It is because of this aggressive search that in this paper I try to discuss various methods of converting wind energy to electrical energy. The places it is obtainable and how it can be best used to achieve maximum result in Nigeria.
