Wind Farm Layout: Modeling and Optimization Using Genetic Algorithm
MetadataShow full item record
Abstract. Wind Farm Layout Optimization (WFLO) is a complex multidisciplinary topic that requires a lot of expertise and is becoming an essential part of today's wind farm planning. Yet, selecting optimum wind farm locations is complex, time-consuming, and influenced by environmental factors and upstream turbines inflow wind. The present study attempts to develop an optimization approach based on the Genetic Approach (GA) to determine the most suitable wind turbine locations that maximize the net energy production while minimizing the Cost of Energy (COE) ($/kWh). The WFLO for the optimized objective function was performed for 500, 1000, and 1500 iterations. The best output was obtained for 1500 iterations with the lowest value for the objective function.
