Abstract: Wind energy is one of the promising solution for future demand and need of energy. Main application of wind energy is in electricity sector. India is having potential for wind installation which is not yet fully explored. This paper compares the results from test rig small scale wind turbine and scale up data for different sizes of turbine as power from small size turbine was very low. A mathematical formulation for wind power is developed for finding total power from the available wind at certain speed. Three factors considered for analysis of three responses. Factors are Wind Speed, Rotor diameter and Swept area for getting response for wind power, torque and wind power density. For different wind speed and different rotor diameter wind power, torque and wind power density calculations done. Response surface method is used to design the experiments and ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) is used to analyze that experiment results are significant or not. Wind data analysis shows that wind speed gives a fairly good response in the range of wind speed 8m/s to 12m/s in practical grounds.
