Full Scale Measurement of Wind Intensity Using in situ Method

Haider F. Abdul Amir and Fuei Pien Chee
Abstract—The emergence of wind energy as a crucial source of the world's at late 20th century makes the manipulation of the wind intensity in selected potential area becomes significant. In this research, an appropriate method, formula, and concept that shall be low-cost and simple to accomplish the in situ wind measuring operating system will be produced. This implemented system is comprised of three parts; an I/O hardware system, a host computer and the controlling software. This system enables that the wind velocity to be measured in three dimensions in order to determine the absolute velocity and direction. The measurement cycle will be once every 1 second to achieve the highest accuracy. The data obtained will be transmitted by analog to digital converter circuit (ADC) to the computer (PC). This is then followed by the mapping of wind velocity and direction at different selected area in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. This enables the calculation of a typical profile of mean wind intensity for different territory and to obtain some information about the statistical and dynamic properties of the wind.

Index TermsIn situ, mapping, wind intensity.
