Small Wind Power Applications

  • Prescribed Burning

    A general understanding of the separate and combined effects of several weather elements on fire behavior is needed to plan and execute a good prescribed burn. Because weather and fuel factors interact, an experienced prescribed burner can conduct a successful burn even with one or more factors slightly outside the desired range—as long as they are offset by other factors. Accurate fire weather monitoring of fire danger indices via the RAWS network, providing historical data leading up to a prescribed burn is critical in the planning stages. However, having accurate weather conditions in a micro-climate scale in real time during the execution of a prescribed burn is just as critical. The weather variables most applicable to prescription burns are air temperature, relative humidity, wind direction, wind speed and precipitation. A combination of wind speed, relative humidity, temperature, and solar insulation largely determines fuel condition which in turn affects fire behavior.

  • Wind Farm Noise Assessment by XL2

    One of the largest acoustic consulting firms in Australia was engaged by the New South Wales Department of Planning & Industry to conduct wind farm noise assessments. The goal was to perform a specialist, independent acoustic compliance audit of three major wind farms located near Canberra, Australia’s capital city. The objective of the study was to conduct a detailed noise assessment at residential dwellings near to the wind farms. Three wind farms near Canberra, Australia, were investigated. XL2 Sound Level Meters were operated on a continuous basis, typically over a six week period at each wind farm. The XL2 was battery powered to enable continuous noise logging for two weeks at a time at each residential site. The recorded data was then processed in accordance with the relevant standards specified in the conditions of consent for wind farms.

    Fence line monitoring around an industrial site or airport

    Monitoring the potential escape of pollutant gases from industrial sites or from airports can be difficult to achieve due to changing weather conditions, which may require a large number of monitoring stations downwind of the escapes.

  • Ammonit Wind Ressource Assessment Systems

    Prior to setting up a wind farm, the local wind conditions have to be measured for site assessment. The construction of a profitable wind farm demand the most accurate and reliable wind measurement technology. The installed equipment has to perform as precisely as possible as the data quality is essential for designing a reliable and economical wind farm. A small discrepancy in the evaluation of wind speed data drastically multiplies the discrepancy of the calculated wind power. Wind resource assessment systems offered by Ammonit meet the highest standards of quality and are designed for the local site conditions with regard to sensor performance, communication system and power supply.

  • Smoke generator device for wind tunnel studies

    For producing a point source of smoke in a wind tunnel environment, Concept have the Aerotech smoke system, with a heated tip on the end of a thin wand. For seeding a wind tunnel for LDA/PVA type work the ViCount 1300 system is normally supplied. This can produce either water or oil based smoke with minor re-programming, so it is a very adaptable solution. The ViCount is such a versatile machine, that its capable of everything from seeding the world’s largest wind tunnel (NASA AMES) through to producing fine smoke rakes in educational wind tunnels.

  • Pulsar noise testing equipment for construction industry

    The construction sector and its wide range of associated activities are very varied and from a noise monitoring perspective offer many unique challenges. However, Pulsar Instruments have a solution; a construction Pulsar noise meter with the ability to effectively assess the following two key categories; Noise at Work (potential for noise induced hearing loss due to long term exposure to noisy activities). Environmental Noise (the potential to cause annoyance to surrounding areas or buildings during site work).
