As the utilization of wind energy grows larger and larger, the need for technical improvement and theoretical understanding becomes significant. Wind energy has been used for many years, however the central questions regarding turbulence are still to be answered. In this complex situation, it is important to analyze the phenomena involved in wind energy extraction. This work presented a stochastic analysis of the power output for a wind turbine based on a Monte Carlo simulation to see how fluctuations in the wind speed will affect the power performance characteristics. It is shown in the presented work by means of a simple model that the probability of power characteristics determined varies with different turbulent wind fields. Then this model is applied on an IEEE 9 bus network.
