Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

An energy yield assessment has been carried out for the proposed 100MW Mzimba wind farm in Malawi on behalf of the University of Strathclyde. The long-term wind distribution was based on approximately 12 months of site data from the 70m Mzimba mast. This was correlated with MERRA reanalysis data and sheared to a hub height of 80m. The long-term 80m wind speed at the Mzimba mast location is 8.13 m/s. The proposed project comprises fifty 2MW wind turbine generators (WTGs). P50 and P90 values (including 20 years inter-annual variation in wind speed) are summarised.
