Abstract

In this paper, the feasibility of installing wind power microgeneration in Montevideo urban environments in a self-producing regime is studied. To do this, a characterization of the demand curves of different areas is carried out, data from several wind turbines is collected and the energy produced, the energy replaced and the corresponding savings in electricity bills are simulated. The proposed methodology allows for the identification of cases of location, type of consumer, tariff and the type of wind turbines for which it is feasible to consider installing wind power microgeneration.
