Wind Energy Potential Assessment of Yola

A. M. Usman, N. H. Waziri, A. Babakano

Abstract: This report present an assessment of wind energy potential of Yola town, the Adamawa State capital based on the Weibull Model using 15yaers mean monthly wind speeds covering (1986-2000) taken at height of 10m. Power densities were found to range from 0.594Wm-2 in November to 2.802Wm-2 in April and energy density was found to range from 0.442kWhm-2 to 2.082kWhm-2. Principles of extrapolation were applied at a height of 30m using roughness of 0.214. Power and energy densities at this height, were found to range from 1.203Wm-2 to 5.672Wm-2 and 0.894kWhm-2 to 4.215kWhm-2 respectively. Weibull’s distribution parameters k, c and Г functions were also computed and their average values were 2.537, 1.408ms-1 and 0.634 respectively. The Assessment reveals that Yola is not a good zone for generation of electrical energy from wind. However, it can be suitable for wind mills for water pumping and grinding or milling pulses and grains.
