4 pagesDate: December 14, 2022


The primary goal of this paper is to evaluate the wind energy potential (WEP) in Ras Munif, Jordan, using the four-probability density to provide insight into the energy that can be produced from the chosen site. The data were collected over a 5-year period at a height of 10 meters above ground level (from 2015 to 2019). Different statistical indicators are studied in depth to find that the Weibull distribution (WD) function is the most proper function. The shape parameter value is 2.829, while the scale parameter is 7.578123 m/s which are assessed using the Maximum Likelihood approach. The study's findings also revealed that the annual mean power density of Ras Munif, values ranged from 110 to 370 W/m2. For Ras Munif, it is noted that the highest WS direction occurs in the sector between 270o to 285o.
