The increasing interest in wind energy requires reliable and accurate method for the wind resource estimation. Wind Atlas Analysis and Application Program (WAsP) are widely utilized to predict wind resource. In this paper, performance analyses are investigated at Belen wind farm installed in Hatay region and has been working for three years. For this purposes, power curve of a wind farm is modelled by the use of WAsP program firstly. Than actual values of the wind farm are measured. Wind power diagram predicted by using wind estimation program WAsP is compared with the real power data obtained from the wind farm. Comparison results have shown that both curves are very close in each other.
