In this study, wind energy potential of Çatalca in Marmara region is analyzed by using hourly average wind speed data which has measured 10 m height from ground level in 2010. The wind speed distribution is modeled by using Weibull distribution. Weibull parameters, shape and scale parameters, are calculated by using two different methods which are graphical method and approximated method. After the calculation of Weibull parameters three wind turbines are selected from different manufacturers. Capacity factor of turbines are determined and also economic analysis is added to this study for choosing the most economical and efficient wind turbine.
