    Abstract: This article comes as a contribution to the development of a specific roadmap with the intention to transform the RIS into a smart grid, based on examples experimented in other countries, surveys, interviews with resource people and the master plan of energy development in Cameroon. To set up this roadmap, an audit of the current network reveals ma... Show More

    Abstract: This study has been focused on the vertical profile determination of the winds under a neutral atmosphere in order to assess of the wind power density at three sites in Guinea. The power law has been used as an extrapolation model for wind speed. The Weibull function has been used to estimate the wind power density. The satellite data at 10 m above... Show More
