Abstract

The High Resolution Model (HRM) which is a Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) meso-scale model was used to estimate wind resource over Oman at 7 km resolution. The simulation was conducted for year 2009. Wind resource at different vertical levels was calculated. Seasonal and annual means are also presented. Model simulation results were validated through a comparison to two weather stations measurements. Good correlation between simulation results and real measurements was obtained.
