Development of Data Acquisition System for Wind Energy Applications
Data Acquisition System
A Data acquisiton system developed for wind energy applications will be described in this paper. This system is composed of an anemometer with two blades downwind and a computer which processes wind data. Wind energy calculated from an average wind speed is inaccurate, since wind power increases with the cube of wind velocity. To decide the design and the site for a wind turbine system, it is very important to consider wind data on a long term basis, that is the total wind energy and distribution of wind speed and direction. This system can visibly provide real time wind data. It can also be available to construct wind energy database for a site.
