Recently, wind energy conversion is also given a serious consideration in Malaysia. Since Malaysia lies in the equatorial region and its climate is governed by the monsoons, the potential for wind energy generation in Malaysia is very much depends on the availability of the wind resource that varies with specific location. In the present study, the wind energy potential of the location is statistically analyzed based on wind speed data, measured over two years period. The probability distributions are derived from the wind speed data and their distributional parameters are identified. Three types of probability distributions have been used to estimate the wind energy potential in Kuala Terengganu, east Malaysia.
