The optimal positioning of wind turbines plays an important role in acquiring the anticipated output power from wind farms. This paper addresses challenges related to typical restriction assumptions for turbine arrangements in wind farms with a candidate selection approach. A hybrid quadratic assignment problem-imperialist competitive algorithm (QAP-ICA) method with an initial candidate points' selection (ICPS) approach is applied to two case studies. This hybrid algorithm is used to obtain optimal layout designs in terms of maximum efficiency. The current study incorporates previously utilized indicators from the literature for wind farms, such as wake effects, turbine hub height, rotor diameter, and transmission losses, and proposes additional criteria such as load-bearing capacity of soil and its restrictions. This is done to make the method applicable for realistic cases, and to assimilate the comments of expert designers. The consequence of an optimal layout design can be superior performance with the proposed algorithm compared to previous similar studies. An efficiency improvement of about 4% is attained for the first case considered, and the algorithm provides reasonable optimal wind farm design layouts for the second case, in which reductions of power losses of the wind farm are considered.

In the current century, energy is become as one of the most critical issues in human's life. Due to global warming, air pollution and the other problems caused by fossil fuels, one of the appropriate sources which is renewable and is invested is wind energy. Iran has a good potential for using wind energy based on its geographical features. Therefore, to have the best productivity for employing wind energy, locating farm winds in a suitable site is a delicate issue. This research applied a hybrid MCDM method for prioritizing potential cities in Iran to install wind farms. In this regard, Step-wise Weight Assessment Ratio Analysis (SWARA) is employed to rank criteria and Weighted Aggregates Sum Product Assessment (WASPAS) applied for evaluating alternatives. In this study 10 cities are detected as high potential places for this aim. Eventually, the most appropriate city is identified as the best place to set up farm winds, and a comprehensive GIS map depicts the results. The results of this research can be used in decision making and planning of energy management in top level of managing requirements of countries in all respects.

Prediction of wind and solar energy is deemed one of the most important contributory factors towards sustainability. Along the same lines, to harvest energy and guarantee the safety of a place, accurate information about the future of the region is needed. To achieve the target, this paper predicts solar irradiation and wind velocity time series by two robust artificial intelligence algorithms which are called Wavelet and ANFIS (Adaptive Network Fuzzy Inference System). The data used for the predictor system are obtained from a meteorological station in Tehran, Iran.  The results show that a) robustness of both algorithms for prediction of wind velocities and solar irradiation b) superior strength of Wavelet to ANFIS for prediction of solar irradiation c) ANFIS makes a better prediction of Wavelet for wind velocities.
