The study offers comprehensive details on the analysis of wind gust in different windy sites in Bangladesh. Gust is the irregular wind behavior. The data has been collected from 18 wind monitoring stations which have been installed for searching wind power potential under the project entitled “Wind Energy Resource Mapping in Bangladesh”. Wind gust factor has been calculated for different locations and analyzed. It also finds out the wind force and torque acting on the power grid towers, wind turbines tower and blades. It has been obtained the effect of a wind gust on turbine base constructions and broken its blades. The total theoretical power of the wind gust has been calculated. In every station, wind gust velocity has been obtained mainly from March to September. The measured gust varies from gale to violent storm type gust. But in some cases, Hurricane class gust has been obtained.
