Wind potential for clear energy production in most of Iran regions is very high. In this paper a
statistical analysis on wind data of Saveh station in Markazi province is implemented. Renewable
energy organization of Iran’s 12-monthed data are used for wind energy calculations. Wind velocity at
40, 30 and 10 meter height is studied firstly. Mean wind velocity on this section at mentioned height
is 4.6, 4.47, 4.06 m/s respectively. Also windrose of wind blow direction is investigated. Using
windrose graph, wind velocity and direction at 30 and 37.5 meters height is presented. Dominant wind
direction is between north and north east. According to Saveh station wind rose dominant wind
direction is fixed. It's important in turbines arrangement, because wind direction fixing is an important
advantage for a wind power-station. Annual wind mean power at 10, 30 and 40 meters height show
that maximum of wind power production is on MAY. Also with evaluation the annual wind average
power at heights of 10, 30 and 40 meters can be seen 40 and 30 meters heights for installing wind
turbines are suitable.
Key words: wind energy, Markazi Province, Saveh Station, weibull distribution, power density.
