ABSTRACT
Wind is an important source of renewable energy. Bangladesh being a tropical country which has a lot of wind flow at different seasons of the year. In this paper, wind power system with battery storage will be presented that can play electricity to our daily uses. Rayleigh distribution functions were considered and fitted to estimate of wind speed data. In our study, we studied previously collected data on the wind resources available in Bangladesh and by analyzing this data and have necessary accessory for application like wind power generation. The wind resources were mapped with the wind power density and the annual mean wind power estimated at, 194.2556W/m2 and 2351.76 Kh and the annual mean wind speed 2.34635 kph on 50m heights and RCL = 0
