The choice of a wind turbine for a given site is a very significant operation. It is advised to make an in-depth study on the characteristics of the aerogenerator and the implantation site before any installation of a wind farm for choosing well the system best adapted to the energy needs. The objective of this study is to sensitize the users of the wind energy on the various problems involved in the aerogenerator installation on any site and to provide a decision-making aid to the judicious choice of the wind system best adapted. The idea is to estimate, for a selected implantation site, the energy production and the operating time of several wind systems. We can thus select the aerogenerator best adapted by making a compromise between a maximum recovery of energy and a high time of production. The influence height of the aerogenerator on energy profitability is also studied. We apply this step to the twenty six Tunisian synoptic sites by implantation scenarios of seven wind systems of various nominal speeds in function of the height.
