There are different numerical wind flow models are existing to simulate atmosphere flows. The conventional approach has been relying on JacksonHunt linear wind flow models, computational fluid dynamics and Reynolds- averaged Navier Stokes models has been explored in research to predict wind resource for a site. The present work aims to analyze the performance of two wind flow models to predict the variation of wind speed. The two are 1) WAsP (linear JacksonHunt model) and 2) CFD/RANS models. The wind flow numerical models are compared with high-quality measurements from single meteorological mast. It has been found that the root meant square error for the WAsP model is 23% greater than the Reynolds- averaged Navier Stokes model.
