Modeling of wind speed characterstic in a particular location is often conducted, one of which is to find out the potential of wind energy in the interest of wind power plants. Of the many probability distributions, the following distributions are distributions that are quite commonly used to model the characteristic of wind speed data, namely Gamma Distribution, Weibull Distribution, Normal Distribution, Lognormal Distribution and Rayleigh Distribution. The results of the analysis and test of

The average wind speed per month ranges from 5.2 to 5.5 knots.
