|Title||AN OFF-GRID WIND ENERGY SYSTEM POWERING A RESIDENCE IN GAZA.|
Coastal and mountain areas enjoy high wind speeds in comparison to other areas and this makes them adequate for exploiting wind energy in various applications efficiently. Harnessing wind energy to power electric appliances starts by converting the energy coming from the wind to electricity. Wind turbine systems change the kinetic energy of the wind into electricity. Where the wind energy turns blades coupled mechanically to an electric generator which, in turn, produces electric energy. Building wind turbine systems for domestic applications is one avenue of the various applications. The process of structuring a wind-energy system begins with the design and selection of the equipment ratings. This process depends on a number of factors such as site location, wind speed, and load requirements. The equipment ratings must be carefully selected to ensure a proper and economical operation of the system. In this paper, this paper demonstrates the procedures employed in building and selecting the equipment of an off-grid wind-energy system based on the Watt-Hours demand as a basic design factor. As a case-study, an off-grid wind-energy system for a mediumenergy-consumption residence in Gaza city will be presented.
