CS290 - Wind Electrical System Lab

Introduction

In this lab you will research and design a wind electrical system for a particular location. The dynamic model you design and build will support the adjustment of the relevant parameters. The write-up will fully describe your system's design, the data and equations, and your model.

First Pass, Due Wednesday December 10th at 12p EST

Turn-in a back-of-the-napkin calculation showing annualized values for:

Second Pass, Due Monday December 15th at 8a EST

Write-up and model which fully describe a wind electrical system for the location at hand. Required elements of the write-up include:

See Shiflet, Module 1.2, for a detailed list of what should be covered under each of these headings.

Required elements of the model include:

Use annualized values for all your calculations.

Neatness and organization count, heavily. Copyedit your work closely. Think about any opportunities you might have for using a well thought-out images, diagrams and/or visualizations to convey information. You can produce the write-up using a word processor, LaTeX, or a wiki page. A spreadsheet is probably the correct tool for the model although it could also be done with either NetLogo's systems dynamics module or VenSim. All values must be appropriately sourced.

Third Pass, Due Thursday December 18th at 8a EST

Address all the feedback you received on your earlier write-ups and models.
