Development of Low Wind Speed Anemometer

Tan Wee Choon, Churia Prakash, Lim Eng Aik, Teoh Thean Hin


Anemometer is a measuring device used to measure the wind speed of an area. Before design or installing a wind turbine, it is important to determine the average wind speed of that particular area throughout the year. But it is illogically to purchase anemometer to measure the wind velocity for a year period. The purpose of this project is to design and fabricate a small scale of anemometer which will able to give the wind velocity with an acceptable range of uncertainty. The fabrication of the anemometer is developed using design methodology and simulation to obtain the optimized design. The designed anemometer has the mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) of 3.23 % when compared with Dwyer series 471 thermo-anemometer.
