Design and Study of a Low-Cost Laboratory Model Digital Wind Power Meter
Radhakrishnan, Rugmini; Karthika, S.
Physics Education, v45 n6 p581-585 Nov 2010
A vane-type low-cost laboratory model anemometer cum power meter is designed and constructed for measuring low wind energy created from accelerating fluids. The constructed anemometer is a device which records the electrical power obtained by the conversion of wind power using a wind sensor coupled to a DC motor. It is designed for its high-reliability, ease of construction and for a wide profile of low-range velocities. The construction of the digital anemometer is an easy task that even unskilled people can manage in a short time. The performance of the digital anemometer is analysed by its capability to convert wind speeds to power. (Contains 5 figures.)
