Özet

Main aim of this study is to investigate annual wind power output, annual hydrogen production quantity and hydrogen production cost of wind-hydrogen energy system in the Pinarba i-Kayseri region in Turkey which has remarkable wind potential in the central region of Turkey. Turkish State Meteorological Service (TSMS) measured the value of mean wind speed of Pmarba i. as 3.67 m/s above 10m ground between 2000 and 2006 years. In this study, three different hub heights (50m, 80m and 100m) were considered, and so the measured mean wind speed at 10m was extrapolated to considered heights and annual wind power output was calculated. Four different turbine rated powers (800kW, 900kW, 2000kW and 3000 kW) and two different electrolyser powers (120kW and 40kW) for hydrogen production were assumed. Levelised cost of electricity method was used in order to determine the cost analysis of wind energy and hydrogen production. The results of this study bring out clearly the variation of potential of hydrogen production and cost with wind speed, wind turbine hub height and wind turbine rated power and electrolyser power.
