Re: Anybody use an annometer to measure windspeed?
by Quentin Gargan at 2011-01-16 20:32:06 (Forum::Public::Wind)
I've used a few.

I used the Inspeed on, but found it became unreliable and started under-reading after about 6 months. Have just ordered a pro anemometer kit from Windlogger. It looks to be well made.

I use a Madgetech logger - it can go right down to 1 second readings, or longer periods if you want it to run for longer.

We also have a logger from Windlogger (above) which records onto an SD card.

I would caution against relying on this entirely to give you an estimate of the income from a wind turbine.

Anemometer cups get pushed by the wind, regardless of turbulence levels, whereas turbine blades are more severely affected by turbulence.

Good luck with it. Quentin.
