Abstract

Wind data collected at ten stations in Malaysia were analysed for wind energy potential. The data were collected over a ten-year period (1982-1991). The results were presented as a Weibull distribution and analysis indicated that the station at Mersing has the greatest potential, with a mean power density of 85.61 W/m2 at 10 m above sea level.
