Wind Energy Assessment
A Complete Solution for Wind Energy Assessment
and Monitoring.

Introduction

Wind energy is a clean, renewable source of power that has the potential to play a significant role in meeting our energy needs. However, in order for wind energy to reach its full potential, it is important to conduct a thorough wind energy assessment. This assessment should take into account factors such as wind speed and direction, as well as the local topography and land use.

One key aspect of a successful wind energy assessment is measuring wind speed and direction. This can be done using anemometers, which are devices that measure wind speed, and wind vanes, which measure wind direction. These measurements can then be used to create a wind resource map, which can help identify areas with the strongest and most consistent winds.

Another important factor to consider in a wind energy assessment is the local topography and land use. Hills, mountains, and other obstacles can affect wind patterns and reduce the potential for wind energy. Similarly, the presence of buildings or other structures can also affect wind patterns and may make certain areas less suitable for wind energy development.

Once the wind resource and local factors have been taken into account, it is important to also consider the potential environmental impacts of wind energy development. These can include impacts on wildlife, such as birds and bats, as well as the visual impact of wind turbines on the landscape. Careful planning and siting can help minimize these impacts and ensure that wind energy development is sustainable.

In conclusion, unlocking the potential of wind energy requires a thorough assessment of the wind resource and local factors, as well as consideration of potential environmental impacts. By taking these factors into account, wind energy can play a significant role in meeting our energy needs while also protecting the environment.

Main Components of wind monitoring system

Thies-Compact

Cup-type anemometer: This is the most common type of anemometer that has three or four cups attached to horizontal arms. The arms are attached to a vertical rod. As the wind blows, the cups rotate, making the rod spin. The stronger the wind blows, the faster the rod spins. The anemometer counts the number of rotations, or turns, which is used to calculate wind speed. Because wind speeds are not consistent—there are gusts and lulls—wind speed is usually averaged over a short period of time.

Thies First Class: 4.3151.10.312

Wind Vane: Windvanes are instruments that show the direction of the wind. Although they provide information about where the wind is blowing, they are mostly decorative and do not give the same information about wind speed as anemometers. Wind direction is crucial information for a boat or vessel for boating safety. The wind is responsible for creating waves and swell. With the use of an anemometer, sailors can obtain reliable weather information and grasp the wind conditions outside.

HD51.3D… – Ultrasonic Anemometer (Aluminium Alloy)

Ultrasonic Anemometer: Ultrasonic sensor uses ultrasonic sound waves to determine instantaneous wind speed by measuring how many sound waves traveling between a pair of transducers are sped up or slowed down by the effect of the wind. It is generally used in remote locations because it does not need maintenance and on-site calibration.

Other Components used in wind monitoring

  • Data loggers: It is used to record data from sensor records and calculate wind live data, it is a very crucial instrument for regular data monitoring.
  • Temperature & humidity sensor: Temperature and humidity sensor is very useful for atmospheric condition monitoring.
  • Air pressure sensor: This measure the air density atmosphere and help us to monitor the atmospheric condition.
  • Remote sensing systems (LiDAR devices): LiDAR systems have been used to measure wind speed and direction, among other things, to validate wind farm performance.
