Abstract

A wind measurement mast has been erected to determine the wind potential of north eastern coast of Lake Van located in Mamedik wind corridor. Yuzuncu Yil University campus is also located in this area. Wind speed sensors are installed at 10 m and 30 m above ground level (AGL) and a wind vane at 30 m. The wind and meteorological parameters have been measured for a period of 28 months from 19 March 2004 till 31 July 2007. The measured data have been analyzed by using WAsP software and wind power potential has been assessed for the site under consideration.
