An Optimal Management System of a Wind Energy Supplier


In this paper, we propose a real time approach to optimize the supplied energy of a wind station. This station is used for electric energy storage in battery bank, water pumping, lighting and heating systems. The characterization of the wind generator allows us to estimate the available electrical wind energy of the platform. A data sheet of the required energy for each load (battery charging, wind pumping system, lighting system and heating system) is drawn up. Basing on the issued data sheet we develop and implement a management system for optimal energy distribution. To improve the proposed management system, we introduce a real time data acquisition (DAQ-S) and data processing (DP-S) subsystems. The DAQ-S measures all the required electrical parameters needed by the proposed DP-S to perform an optimal algorithm activating our smart decision system to allow a rational and effective use of the electrical wind power.
