2019 NOV 13 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Daily News -- Fresh data on Energy - Wind Energy are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Nigde, Turkey, by NewsRx editors, research stated, “Wind energy is a significant and eligible source that has the potential for producing energy in a continuous and sustainable manner among renewable energy sources. However, wind energy has several challenges, such as initial investment costs, the stationary property of wind plants, and the difficulty in finding wind-efficient energy areas.”

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Omar Halisdemir University, “In this study, long-term wind power forecasting was performed based on daily wind speed data using five machine learning algorithms. We proposed a method based on machine learning algorithms to forecast wind power values efficiently. We conducted several case studies to reveal performances of machine learning algorithms. The results showed that machine learning algorithms could be used for forecasting long-term wind power values with respect to historical wind speed data. Furthermore, the results showed that machine learning-based models could be applied to a location different from model-trained locations.”

According to the news editors, the research concluded: “This study demonstrated that machine learning algorithms could be successfully used before the establishment of wind plants in an unknown geographical location whether it is logical by using the model of a base location.”
