Abstract

Modeling of wind speed characterstic in a particular location is often conducted, one of which is to find out the potential of wind energy in the interest of wind power plants. Of the many probability distributions, the following distributions are distributions that are quite commonly used to model the characteristic of wind speed data, namely Gamma Distribution, Weibull Distribution, Normal Distribution, Lognormal Distribution and Rayleigh Distribution. The results of the analysis and test of wind speed data in the Mopah Airport area shows that the Distribution of 3 Parameters-Gamma is the most suitable distribution to model the wind speed characteristic in the region with the shape parameters α = 26,585, scale parameters β = 0,2283 and location parameters ɣ = -0,7061. The average wind speed per month ranges from 5.2 to 5.5 knots.
