15 locations with wind speeds of more than 5 m/s were explored among 24 locations across Syria. Wind data from these locations was analyzed using the Weibull distribution, along with 15 different turbines. Three performance indicators were calculated and compared between each other: annual energy production, power factor (θ) and energy cost (z). The economic potential was calculated and the economic efficiency of wind turbines was studied on the basis of optimization of wind farm parameters that helped to find an option that provides the lowest price for electricity production on wind turbines. The study reveals that E70 71m 2300kw is the optimal turbine in all areas (from the places under consideration), both in terms of the highest efficiency and the lowest energy cost. The results show that the area of Sokhna has the largest economic potential because of the big space suitable for the establishment of wind turbines. Using the proposed wind farm scenario until 2030 is able to cover the deficit by 7.22%.
