ABSTRACT : In this project, the wind energy potentials of selected region in Palestine which is "GAZA STRIP" well be done. Along term hourly wind speed data is the most appropriate form for calculating wind speeds duration and the available power. The data forms available were not so accurate, and it was necessary to bring them as close as possible to the recommended data forms. The data which was modified was identified Gaza Strip as one of the regions that have low energy potentials approximately about 54.9 kwh/m 2 if compared by Ramallah which has high energy potentials approximated to 712.2 kwh/m 2 . INTRODUCTION :         Renewable energy, mainly solar and wind energy , can play an important rule in solving energy problems in Gaza Strip and West Bank. And the energy of the wind is an important natural source of mechanical power, It was important for the windmill's site to have a high average wind speed. These windmills were located in towns and villages where the power is needed. The power which could be produced is small, and the intermittent operation of the wind energy conversion system (WECS) so windmills are unable to compete with cheaper, more reliable and abundant sources discovered later. The world started to think seriously about renewable energy especially that of wind. Comparing with the steadily rising fuel costs, wind energy is becoming an attractive source for the future power supply systems. In this project many types of wind turbines and different shapes working in different axis which were discovered had been shown in Fig 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
