This paper deals with the problem of clustering daily wind speed time series based on two features referred to as Wr and H, representing a measure of the relative daily average wind speed and the Hurst exponent, respectively. Daily values of the pairs (Wr, H) are first classified by means of the fuzzy c-means unsupervised clustering algorithm and then results are used to train a supervised MLP neural network classifier. It is shown that associating to a true wind speed time series a time series
