AbstractThe knowledge of wind speed characteristics of a region is among the most important aspect of wind turbines utilization for electricity production and assessing the cost of power generation. The wind spectrum and the wind power density for the city of Chabahar located in the southeastern part of Iran were modeled using Weibull distribution and power law estimation. An empirical approach was used to determine the shape parameter, k, and the scale parameter, c, of Weibull distribution function at different heights from 2014 to 2016 during two years period. Wind characteristics in Chabahar were extensively analyzed along with assessing the effects of parameters such as air humidity and temperature, surface roughness, turbulence, and wind velocity durations. The amount of wind power that can be produced by installation of eight wind turbines with different powers ranging from 2.5 kW to 8 MW at Chabahar were investigated. Additionally, the annual capacity factor for each turbine was determined. A wind-hydrogen system was considered in the analysis for evaluating the hydrogen production ability from wind energy in the station at Chabahar. The highest amount of hydrogen production was related to Vestas V164 with the yearly value of 194.36 ton-H2.
