Abstract
Renewable energy is environmental-friendly energy compared to the conventional one. Wind energy is a renewable energy having big potential in supporting clean energy revolution in Indonesia. This research aims to calculate the wind energy potential power that can be used as a power plant. The data collection of the wind velocity is at Musamus University, Veterans’ Housing, and Field of Pelayaran Lama Nowari Dormitory. The data collection is carried out in the morning, afternoon, and evening for 1 month, that is, from February-March 2018. The wind velocity is measured using Anemometer. This research uses equation of specific and big power of the wind kinetic power that can be converted into the useful power on the shaft. The measurement results of the wind velocity on the stated locations are: the average velocity at Musamus University is 3.51 m/s with the average power potential of 32.129 Watt; the average velocity at Veteran’s Housing is 3.11 m/s with the average power potential of 24.783 Watt; the average velocity at the field of Pelayaran Lama Nowari Dormitory is 2.81 m/s with power potential of 16.634 Watt. Based on the measurement result, the area or point with the wind potential as a power plant is at Musamus University campus, in which the average velocity is 3.51 m/s and the average power is 32.129 Watt
