An Assessment of Energy Production Capacity of Amasra Town Using Artificial Neural Networks

Ünal Kaya, Yüksel Oğuz, Ümit Şenol


This study aimed to estimate the amount of power can be generated using wind turbines in accordance with the wind speed data obtained from Amasra town, using Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) method. In the training of artificial neural network, wind speeds ranging between 0 and 20 m/s were used as artificial neural network input while the production data from six wind turbines (Gamesa G97-2MW, Suzlon S.88-2100, Siemens SWT-2.3-113, N100-2.5 MW, E82-3 MW, V117-3.3 MW) were used as ANN outputs. Moreover, wind speed data collected from Amasra during 2016 was used in the test phase. Hence, the energy generation capacity of Amasra was analyzed with different wind turbines.
