Academic Highlights

University of Missouri-St. Louis /Washington University Joint Engineering Program (senior design) 2021

A simulation project presents design alternatives and economic analyses in response to the white Oak wind Farm request. Using given data from NREL to generate wind speed vs Hours/year from MATLAB to estimate annual energy harvested from each alternative. Using the NERL-reV model to check the result. Then, I redesign feeder layout based on the cable sizing. Using standard and codes from IEEE to selected feeder and circuit breakers sizes. Calculate the fault current and capacitor banks rating by using base change calculation. Using the ASPEN power flow toolbox to evaluate the three-phase faults and voltage drops on each line. Last, our team used B/C (Benefit /Cost) analysis to select the best option which has a maximum profit that is 28.922 million for 10 years to the company.
