An Assessment of Wind Power Potential along the Coast of Bursa, Turkey: A Wind Power Plant Feasibility Study for Gemlik Region

Semih Akın and Yusuf Ali Kara
Abstract—In this study, wind power potential in the coastal areas of Bursa Province in Turkey is studied. Current potential of the wind energy in Bursa is investigated. The main purpose of this study is to investigate for finding the feasible areas for wind power plants installation in the coast of Bursa. In order to provide inputs to investors and policy makers for exploiting wind potential of the region, a wind power plant (WPP) feasibility study for Gemlik region connected with Bursa Province is revealed by using Windsim software. Wind data of Gemlik applied to Windsim software: annual energy production (AEP), capacity factor are calculated and also power and energy curves of selected wind turbines are obtained as output. The results of the study shows that by using 6 Vestas V90 wind turbines in Gemlik Narlı region, establishment of an economic wind power plant which has over 40 GWh/y AEP capacity is feasible.

Index Terms—Renewable energy sources, wind energy, wind power plant, Windsim.
