Wind is one of renewable and clean energies than can be used instead of fossil fuel for providing energy. According to environmental attitudes and importance of human society contracting wind farms is one of major plans in developed or developing countries. A collection of wind turbines due to the atmospheric conditions of each state. The kinetic energy caused by movement of turbine is transported by shaft to generator for generating electricity.
According to wind atlas and details accumulated from 60 sites in different parts in iran the capacity of sites is about 60,000 MW and 18,000 MW of it can be generated due to the recent predictions that show a significant potential of contracting wind power plants and it’s economically feasible to invest on it.
Amayesh Rah Mihan Company as knowledge based company and one of “FARAAB” Directors, the biggest EPC contractor of power plants, has much experience by participating in dozens of power plant projects and gained design and contracting technical knowledge. For extending activities ARAMICO has established ARAMICO-Hydrochina consortium for getting more technical knowledge with cooperation of international experts.
Wind power advantages include Conservation of fuels, renewability, little water consumption and environmental purification. Besides, expenses of electricity production by wind generators is lower compared to other common methods.
Choosing the right location for wind farm is one of the most parameters to contract these power plants. Equipment used in power plant blade or rotor, which converts the energy in the wind to rotational shaft energy, a drive train, usually including a gearbox and a generator a tower that supports the rotor and drive train and other equipment, including controls, electrical cables, ground support equipment, and interconnection equipment.
