    Abstract

    Analysis of the hourly wind speeds at Gaya for the period 1958-1960 shows that the electrical energy extractable in a year using a wind machine of 30 sq.m. swept area and of 12% overall power coefficient is 1320 kWh. The average annual quantity of water that could be pumped by a windmill of 23.5 sq. m. swept area (WP-2 type) and of 12% overall power coefficient works out to 39610 kl. (8,714,200 gal.) or 23,870 gal. per day. The number of hours of low wind (speed below 8 km.p,h.) In a day have been completed. The diurnal variation of wind speed is also discussed.
