    Abstract

    The hourly wind speeds at Hyderabad for the three13; years 1958-60 have been analysed. Frequencies and cummulative frequencies of wind speeds have been worked out and used to estimate the amount of energy that can be extracted from the wind at Hyderabad under certain assumptions. Durations of spells of low wind (less than 8 km,.p.h) and the diurnal variation of wind have also been examined since they have bearing on energy storage problems. The annual energy output is estimated at 1,250 KWh for a generator with an overall power coefficient of 12 percent. The water pumping capacity of a windmill is estimated at 37,300 kilolitres a year.
