    Abstract: In the last century, there was no major alteration in the structure of power grids. Studies have shown that existing infrastructure is no longer suitable to meet requirements of the future. To overcome the challenges and fulfil future requirements, we need a network that is reliable, efficient and intelligent. This has led to the development of eme... Show More

    Abstract: Due to the unpredictable nature of wind speed and direction, there is a need to optimize the wind turbines placement to extract maximum available wind power at a low cost. Through optimization, best positions of the wind turbines that lead to maximum output are determined. This paper presents an into an optimal Wind Turbine (WT) layout pattern for ... Show More
