In our proposed approach, we integrate ADA boosting with particle swarm optimization-extreme learning machine (PSO-ELM) to enhance the accuracy of wind power estimation, addressing the inherent unpredictability and variability in wind energy. Initially, we refine the thresholds and input weights of the extreme learning machine (ELM) and then construct the PSO-ELM prediction model. ADA Boost is utilized to generate multiple weak predictors, each comprising a distinct hidden layer node. The PSO technique is then employed to optimize the input weights and thresholds for each weak predictor. The final forecast is attained by amalgamating and weighting the outcomes from each weak predictor using a robust wind power forecast model. Experimental validation utilizing data from Turkish wind turbines underscores the efficacy of our approach. Comparative analysis against contemporary techniques such as ensemble learning models and optimal neural networks reveals that our ADA-PSO-ELM model demonstrates superior accuracy and generalizability in predicting wind power output under real-world conditions. The proposed approach offers a promising framework for addressing the challenges associated with wind power estimation, thereby facilitating more reliable and efficient utilization of wind energy resources.
