In this study, an extreme value distribution of the gust wind speeds is obtained in a large selected area of Iran. The generalized Pareto distribution is used to find out the type of wind speed distribution. The three parameters of the generalized extreme value distribution function are reduced to either type I Gumbel, type II Frechet or type III reverse Weibull distribution function for the annual extreme gust wind speeds. It is obtained that, the annual extreme gust wind speeds at 102 stations have a reverse Weibull function distribution. It is also obtained that, type I Gumbel extreme value function is the best model for many of the studied stations.
