    Abstract

    The analysis of hourly wind speeds for Jagdalpur and13; Jamshedpur revealed certain features from the point of view of wind power utilization, which called for a combined study of these two stations. One of these factors is the low value of annual energy at each of these stations compared to the other stations. Jagdalpur has an annual mean wind speed as low as 3 km.p.h. The annual output 01' energy from a is had mill of 30 sq.m. swept area, cut- in speed of 8h.p.h. and constant overall power coefficient of 12 per cent works out to 89 kwh The quantity of water that can be pumped in year by 5 WP-2 type windmill of 23.6 sq.m. swept area and overall power coefficient of 12 per cent has been estimated at 2,600 kl. Jamshedpur has an annual mean wind speed of 5 km.p.h. The annual output of energy here works out to 236 kwh. The quantit0000000y of water that can be plumped by a hP-2 type windmill at Jamshedpur has been estimated at 6,590 k l per year.
