Wind Data Assessment for Wind Power Production with a View to Reducing the Rate of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the City of Abéché, Chad

The objective of this research work is to assess the wind potential of the city of Abéché, based on data provided over ten (10) years by the meteorological station of the National Meteorological Agency (ANAM) of Chad using daily wind data for a recording interval of one hour. Then, the mathematical model used to evaluate wind parameters is the Weibull distribution which is one of the most widely used distributions in several previous works for the assessment of wind potential. This mathematical model made it possible to accurately assess the wind power density and the energy density available at different altitudes: 10m, 30m, 50m and 80m. Then, a numerical simulation allowed us to identify the different wind turbinesapplicable to the study site. The result obtained from this work shows that wind turbines can only be installed for the production of electricity from a height of 30m in the Town of Abeche. The project will reduce 93% percent GHG emissions.
