Sensitivity analysis of the economic-financial feasibility study of the Punta de Maisí Wind Farm project.
Main Article Content
In Maisí municipality, the easternmost municipality of Cuba, belonging to Guantánamo province, at coordinates 20,270 N and 74,220 W approximately, pre-feasibility studies are being carried out for a wind farm project in two sites known as Punta Fraile and Punta Quemado. Two variants are proposed. The objective of this work was to perform sensitivity analyses on the profitability of the parameters susceptible to change, in order to determine the limits within which they can move without the project becoming unprofitable. For the studies, a program was designed for pure and hybrid renewable sources; it has a module for the estimation of the capital cost based on the relevant parameters of the project, which guarantees equal conditions in the analysis of variants. The economicfinancial evaluation is carried out using four fundamental criteria that complement each other. The results are given in the form of a comparative table of variants and influential sensitivity parameters.
