In this research, the wind speed model and the wind farm power model is developed and the results are estimated and simulated in the MATLAB from the designed algorithm using the historic input wind data. For the wind speed forecasting, the historic input wind speed data is used to estimate and forecast the wind speed in advance from the wind speed models. For the wind farm power model the input to the power model is the historic wind speed, pressure, temperature, wind direction, and air density. The wind farm power is determined from the designed algorithm simulated in the MATLAB. -- The wake effect is considered in the wind farm power model and it depends on the wind direction and the wind farm layout. Transmission loss due to the power transmission in the cables is determined for the wind farm. Using this approach the wind farm power of the Fermeuse wind farm and the Cedar Creek Colorado wind farm is determined. This thesis presents the details and results of research.
