An analytical review on the evaluation of wind resource and wind turbine for urban application: Prospect and challenges

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Wind energy is a promising scheme in the power generation sector due to pollution-free power production and wind resources’ sufficiency worldwide. Installing wind turbines in all the possible extents can mitigate the rising energy demand. Built-up areas possess high potential for wind energy, including the rooftop of high-rise buildings, railway track, the region between or around multistoried buildings, and city roads. Harnessing wind energy from these areas is quite challenging since it has dramatic nature and turbulence for higher roughness on urban surfaces. This review paper endeavors to highlight the present status of urban wind farm technology and its commercial and environmental aspects. Observations and upcoming research trends have been presented based on up-to-the-minute information. It is concluded that further investigation of wind mapping and the suitable design of turbines is essential to make the urban wind farm a reliable and feasible option for decentralized power generation.
