In recent years, wind energy is one of the fastest developing renewable energy sources technologies across the globe. Wind energy conversion given a serious consideration in Malaysia since it is located in the equatorial region. Wind energy generation in Malaysia is very much depends on the availability of the wind sources that varies with specific location. This paper present analysis of wind speed by using Weilbull distribution function and describes the performance on the Horizontal axis Wind Turbine (HAWT). The wind speed data and output voltage from the wind turbine is recorded per hour for a 24 hour by using Davis Vantage Pro2 Weather station and Electrocoder. A few calculations has been done to get output power from the wind to shows potentialities of wind energy weather it can be develop in Perlis.
