Abstract

Renewable energy sources are becoming increasingly important due to climate change and the energy crisis. Wind energy projects and applications in particular have been growing recently. Meteorological parameters such as wind speed, ambient temperature, relative humidity, and air pressure directly affect wind turbine electricity generation. Understanding the relationships among these parameters is necessary to determine wind energy potential and to predict electricity generation.
