In this study, a 5kW wind energy system with an integrated storage bank is sized to supports a maximum of 2 households with a reliable daily energy need. For a successful implementation of this off-grid wind energy system, a 24-month wind data sampled on a 10m hub height and stored as 5-minute wind data are obtained for this study to anticipate the wind energy output at this site. Because of the variation of the wind, the energy output of this 5kW turbine is estimated using the statistical…
