The use of wind as an energy source is becoming popular because it is non-polluting and renewable. There is a pressing need in Malaysia to develop site-based technology on wind engineering, which can be used for optimal design of wind turbines and wind farming. The wind speed time series data of east coast of Peninsular Malaysia were analyzed to study the seasonal and diurnal wind characteristics. The Weibull parameters were computed using maximum likelihood method, the modified maximum likelihood method and the graphical method.
