Index Terms: Wind velocity, wind power, power generation, power adaptability, wind power potentiality, maximum power and site selection.
Abstract: This paper tries to investigate the wind power potentiality in Bangladesh based on wind velocity data. For this purpose wind velocity data are taken for various locations in Bangladesh. From the data analysis, it is seen that the maximum wind potentiality is existing in Chittagong from the aspect of wind velocity.
