Abstract

The improvement of a nation's economy may be greatly aided by traditional energy sources based on coal, gas, and oil; but the negative environmental effects of such supplies have forced us to utilize them in moderation and shifted our focus to solar and wind power. By using renewable energy sources, which are thought of as environmentally benign due to their low or nonexistent emissions of emissions and harmful gases like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, etc., societal, environmental, and economic issues may be avoided. Given that we can continually create useable energy from renewable resources, they will play a significant role in generating power in the near future. The production of wind energy is thought to consume the least amount of water, emit the fewest greenhouse gases, and have the best social effects. It is regarded as one of the most resilient renewable energy sources, behind geothermal, hydropower, and photovoltaics. These resources can aid in reducing the greenhouse effect and the effects of climate change because they are regarded as clean energy supplies. The appropriate use of renewable energy systems may lead to considerable jobs, improved health, job possibilities, consumer choice, a higher quality of living, social bond formation, income development, demographic impacts, social bond building, and community development. Along with their many outstanding benefits, such supplies also have some drawbacks, including the seasonal changes in outcome that is typical of wind and hydroelectric power plants. To address this, special design and consideration are needed, which are satisfied by the hardware and software due to advancements in information technology. A real example will be investigated in this article for better imagination and computations.
