Daniel Kasapis Wind Power Generation In Remote Communities Exuctive Summary This report, prepared by Remote Power Inc (RPI), discusses the proposal for a wind power generator on Palm Island and presents numerous possible solutions to the problems of building a wind power generator on Palm Island. The objective of the wind power generator on palm Island is to supply “24/7” electrical power to an incubator for premature babies. Details of possible solutions to the construction of the wind power generator are included in the report. These solutions are presented as technically modern and useful options for a remote community such as Palm Island. This report will cover the following problems that arise when building a remote wind power generator in an Indigenous community: The demographics of Palm Island Wind generation of power Storage of electrical energy Foundations on difficult soils When writing the report each of the four problems (stated above) were researched accordingly using past events, new technology and accurate data. Palm Island was found to consist of mainly Indigenous people, thus making sure the construction of the wind tower was welcome by the people important. In wind generation of power, It was found to by highly significant that the wind speeds were constant as this provided “24/7” power. As well as the larger the surface area of the wind turbine, the larger the power produced. It was found that the storage of electrical energy was very important with wind power generation because the unreliability of winds blowing at constant speeds. Storage of electrical power insured the “24/7” power that is needed. While researching the foundations on difficult soils, it was exposed that if the soils did not meet the “bearing capacity,” “deep foundations” would have to be used so that the foundations could be in more sound soil lower in the ground. Definite solutions are not discussed in this report, although many solutions are presented and discussed to provide a thorough understanding of the problems and their possible solutions. Page 2
