The article focuses on the first step of wind turbine modeling which can be represented as the obtaining of the coefficient of performance Cp. This coefficient is based on available rotor angular velocity and pitch angle data. The dataset obtained from one of the first large Ukrainian wind-electric plants of the “Wind park Ochakovskiy” PJSC was used as initial data for constructing its mathematical model. This plant is equipped with Fuhrländer FL 2500-100 wind turbine (50 m blade length, 100 m rotor axis height).
