Abstract

The present research work was focused on the assessment of the wind speed in San Jose, Mindoro, Philippines to determine the primary relationship of its location on feasibility of constructing a wind power station.  The demands of electric power generation are rapidly increasing as the population increases; thus, the need to build a power station in locality is necessary to meet the demands. Normally, wind power stations are in remote areas to prevent hazard and noise pollution for residential areas and commercial establishments. Further, wind speed is stronger to non-obstacle areas, as it reaches its peak values on clear and plain fields. Moreover, it will provide additional knowledge for scientific observations and study in the area to help in the different aspects of science related to wind studies. Wind speed parameters are discussed and analysed in this paper to investigate the viability of the location. The results show that the average wind speed in San Jose, Mindoro, Philippines varies from 2.35 to 2.43 kph between the years of 2015–2018. Although, it is possible to harvest wind energy during the first quarter of the year, it is not, however, ideal to construct a wind power farm for energy consumption, as it may only produce a minimal capacity of the wind power station because 60% of the data recorded in each year is only at its minimum wind speed.
