A better anemometer gives more accurate wind measurements and monitoring
Although intended to measure wind speeds, conventional anemometers often provide imprecise data. On a wind turbine, these devices are mounted on the nacelle behind the rotor. But this placement can provide distorted measurements because of potential for wind effects from the rotor and nacelle…. Read the full article here
