Wind Resources Potential as a Wind Power Plant in Kulon Progo, Indonesia

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
This paper proposes the wind resources potential as a wind power plant in Kulon Progo, Indonesia. The location of this research is Congot Beach, Jangkaran Village, Temon District, Kulon Progo Regency, Yogyakarta Special Region Province, Indonesia. By considering that weather in the area is very conducive to the speed and strength of the wind, and the area is still full and extensive so that it is free to make a building for electric power plants using a windmill. The optimal configuration
