This paper utilizes three hourly measured values of wind speed and direction from seven buoys data collection stations in Aegean Sea to study the wind speed and power characteristics applying the Weibull shape and scale parameters. Specifically, the site dependent, annual and monthly mean patterns of mean wind speed, Weibull parameters, frequency distribution, most probable wind speed, maximum energy carrying wind speed, wind power density and wind energy density characteristics have been…
