Abstract:

In almost all research fields, the procedure for handling missing values must be addressed before a detailed analysis can be made. Thus, a suitable method of imputation should be chosen to address the missing value problem. Wind speed has been found in engineering practice to be the most significant parameter in wind power. However, researchers are sometimes faced with the problem of missing wind speed data caused by equipment failure. In this study, we attempt to implement four types of single imputation methods to estimate the wind speed data from three adjacent stations in Malaysia. The methods, known as the site-dependent effect method, the hour mean method, the last and next method, and the row mean method, are compared based on the index of agreement to identify the best method for estimating the missing values. The results indicate that the last and next is the best of the three methods for estimating the missing data for the wind stations considered.
