Wind power is regarded as the most suitable environment friendly alternative to conventional bulk power generation. Many countries around the world are rapidly installing wind farms, and several nations have already arrived at a position where a significant portion of their electric energy supply is contributed by wind power. Wind power generation is mainly dependant on the wind characteristics at the particular location and has an uncertain and random nature.
