Abstract

Manjil is located in north of Iran and is capable of harnessing wind energy for electricity purpose. There are about six different stations in that region which all of them have excellent record of wind speed in different months of the year. It is one of the best locations in the world for installing wind turbine and the utility department has invested a lot of money to establish wind farms in this region. Statistical analysis for six different installed stations show that it is one of the best locations in the world for establishing wind farms. In this paper, wind speed at different sites in Manjil has been analyzed and it shows that it has a great potential for harnessing wind energy. So far, there has been only 51 wind turbines installed in the area and there is a plan to increases that amount in the future.
