Hourly mean wind speed data for the period 1;38-60 have been used to estimate the energy and water output of wind driven plants the distribution of wind speed, the diurnal variation wind speed and spells of low wind have also been studied. the annual mean wind speed at New Delhi is 10 km.P.h. the estimated annual energy output of a wind driven plant of cut-in speed 8km.p.h., swept area 30 sq.m.and overall power coefficient 12 percent is 1361 kWh. the estimated annual water output of a windmill of the WP-2 type is 39,940 kilolitres. These estimated values of water out put have been compared with the actual output of a WP-2 windmill installed at the technical centre of the civil aviation department, New Delhi, and with the estimates made from the wind data recorded by a cup-contact anemometer with impulse recorder installed near the windmill.
