The aim of this paper is to study and analyse the size of rotor of wind turbine at heights. The study analysis of relevant data at set of for different hub heights of 30 m, 40 m, 50 m, 78 m and 100 m is carried out to compute power coefficient and extractable power. An increase in hub height caused an increase in energy generation of 3.52% and 6.28% for 78 m to 100 m, and for 78 m to 100 m hub heights, respectively. The results analysis leads to the power attainment in respect of height of hub and rotor size at a particular location of a wind farm. The data analytic finding leads to cost effective design of wind turbine to render required energy at that location of wind turbine.
