Abstract: Wind power potentials of the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region have been statistically analyzed based on the hourly measured wind speed data in four islands. The hourly and monthly wind speed and wind power density are assessed to have remarkable variations, and the Weibull distribution function has been derived from the available data with its two parameters identified. The wind power and operating possibilities of these locations have been studied based on the Weibull function. The wind power potentials of these sites were found to be encouraging; however, the wind power at different site varies significantly, so attention should be paid to the wind conditions as well as the site terrains in choosing the wind farm sites.
