Considering the produced power and the output wind velocity (V2) for the year 2013 of five wind turbines in La Rumorosa I wind farm, located in the town of La Rumorosa, Baja California, Mexico; exergetic analysis was apply to determine relations between the efficiency variables, considering only the time the wind turbine is in use (worked hours H). Also, it was calculated the percentage of the entire year in which the turbines were producing energy. We found that relation between exergetic efficiency (E) and power coefficient (Cp) is inversely proportional in all cases for the twelve months of the year 2013. In addition, we propose a new relation which shows the exergetic efficiency as a function of input wind velocity (V1) and the power coefficient, for the mentioned period.
