The study presents the statistical analysis of wind data at different location of Bangladesh over a period of years. The data has been shorted in sequence of appropriate frequency as hourly, daily and monthly mean wind speed. Two important parameters like Weibull’s shape factor “k” and Weibul’sl scale factor “c” have been obtained from the data. Weibull’s function F(v), Weibull’s probability density function f(v), and available power in the wind (w/m2) have also been obtained from the wind data. Then a horizontal axis wind turbine has been designed for the selected site. For the simulation of power in replaced of designed wind turbine a remote controlled motor has been coupled with a generator. The motor speed has been controlled by PWM signal in its ten steps. Couple microcontrollers have been used for the simulation. High radio frequency remote have been designed to control the motor. At any step, the motor RPM, generator output voltage and switch position have been digitally displayed in the LCD display screen.
