The objective of this work is to map the wind energy resource of the city of Faya, as well as the evaluation of the annual energy produced at an altitude of 80 m by the simulation of the wind data using the wind speed data collected by the Faya Airport weather station and available for five years. In this perspective, we begin with the description of the site, the determination of the various wind parameters, such as the mathematical modeling of the wind frequency distribution: Weibull distribution and the numerical simulation of the real wind data collected during five years to provide predictions on a site in the city of Faya. Then, we estimate its wind potential, its prediction of the electric energy produced and we proceed to an analysis of the turbulence of the wind while relying on the taking into account of the obstacles surrounding near the mast of measurement of the airport of Faya, the topography, the roughness of the site, the density and a judicious choice of wind turbines. The installation of a wind farm of 4 wind turbines Vestas V80 / 1.8 MW at a height of 80 m would produce 4,647 GWh of energy and the monthly amount of water has 1322 m3 and 2069 m3 for the rotor -pump-dynamic.
