    Abstract: In this work, we propose a preliminary design of a horizontal-axis wind turbine (HAWT) as a candidate for the Dhofar Wind Farm project, in the southern Omani Governorate “Dhofar”, at the southwest part of the Sultanate of Oman. This wind farm (under construction) is considered to be the first commercial, utility-scale (50MW) wind farm in the GCC (G... Show More

    Abstract: Most of the wind energy conversion systems are failing in many developing countries such as Nigeria due to poor and un-appropriate site selection. Ten years (2001-2010) daily average wind speed data measured at 10m height for Minna (9.6°N, 6.6°E and 251m) were obtained from Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) and the characteristics of the three...
