Wind Monitoring Applications

  • Meteo Information for Safe Operation

    In the industry segment meteo information is essential for safe operation. To deal with emergencies, accurate real-time information on wind conditions (direction and speed) is crucial. In some cases we feed this data directly into safety applications which models and predicts the progression of released gas clouds.

  • Fire Weather Networks , Wildfire Supression

    Every year, 35 million hectares —or about 1% of the world’s forests— are lost to wildfire. Recently in North America the area burnt by wildfires has increased sharply, while regions like Southeast Asia and South America have seen a rise in the number of land-clearing fires and other escaped wildfires in equatorial forests. The extraordinary costs of fire suppression activities are matched only by the damages to property and ecosystems these fire wreak—in South America, this loss is estimated at $1.6 billion annually. In the US, damages from major fires were found to account for as much as 95% of total costs from fire. Advances have been made through the use of basic weather data from meteorological stations. In years past, fire agencies used this data to develop fire danger rating systems that helped them predict, prevent and suppress fires. How can fire management agencies improve their ability to predict, prevent and fight wildfires? By installing dedicated fire weather network.

  • Wind farm noise monitoring

    Wind energy is a renewable energy source that is being harnessed globally to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and the associated impact on our environment. However, the environmental impact of the turbine noise and the blade pass noise is a concern that is carefully monitored and generally regulated. It is very important to be able to acquire accurate acoustical data for analysis, noise impact predictions, and regulatory compliance. Effective noise monitoring is a very valuable tool to manage a wind farm’s relationship with the community and with the local regulatory organizations.

  • Dust monitoring and Sand Storm Monitoring

    The frequency and intensity of dust and sand storms in many parts of the world are steadily increasing due to droughts and climate change. The severity of such storms is anticipated to increase over the coming years. These dust storms may last hours or days and cause huge damage and imposed a heavy toll on society with its physical effects, such as visibility reduction, heavy winds, red sky, hailstone and severe lightning. Such Dust storms, have a negative impact on human health, and industrial products and activities. They reduce visibility, layer on skin and cloths, infiltrate buildings and find their way into food and drinking water leaving a permanent sandy feeling in your mouth. Traditional dust monitoring instruments whether they be purely filter based gravimetric samplers or continuous monitors utilising Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM) or Beta Attenuation (BAM) simply are unable to cope with the high dust loads created by these storms. The filters on these instruments are quickly clogged and no further measurements are possible until a service technician visits to replace filters and filter tapes. In dust storm events this is impossible. Therefore, over the past few years a need for alternate technology which are non filter based, can cope with extremely high dust loads, require minimal maintenance and can operate off solar power has been employed in regions such as the Gobi Desert of China for the continuous monitoring of dust storm events. These instruments have demonstrated that an instrument can measure dust storm events with maintenance performed only once every 12 months. That it is possible to communicate remotely and that these systems can not only provide an early warning for dust events but have the accuracy and sensitivity to be an extremely useful tool in gauging hourly changes of visibility. Infact such instruments have been utilised by a number of EPAs around the world, including all Australian EPAs for the purpose of measuring ambient visibility as well as providing an accurate indication of rising dust events.

  • Ammonit Wind Resource Assessment in Cold Climates

    For wind resource assessment campaigns in regions with long and cold winters, special measurement systems have to be designed. The challenges of cold climate regions should never be underestimated. Particularly icing is a problem. The met mast construction and the installed sensors have to be chosen carefully. The instruments have to be properly heated by a reliable power system. With our long-term experience in wind measurement and our local installation partners we can offer complete measurement systems robust enough for harsh and cold climates. Ammonit offers standard heating systems as well as individual heating solutions, which combine several power sources suitable for the site.

  • 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.

  • Ammonit Wind Farm Monitoring Systems (SCADA)

    Once the wind farm is set up and running, its best performance has to be ensured. To do so, it is essential to monitor and check its operation. Meteo-40 can easily be integrated in SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems to provide reliable comparative meteorological data. Considering the measurement data recorded by Meteo-40, for example, predictions about the annual energy production of the wind farm can be verified. Meteo-40 records measurement data, which is used by wind farm operators and investors, as well as for forecasting reasons. With its configurable Modbus Register Map Meteo-40 is designed for operation in most existing SCADA systems. The necessary parameters are configured via the user-friendly Meteo-40 web interface.

  • Fire Danger Rating / Forecasting

    For various reasons, including the changing global climate, wildfires are getting bigger, more destructive and more expensive. Effective, consistent and reliable detection of climate parameters is the key to preventing wildfires and managing the impact they have. Our equipment resides for decades in solitary confinement generally in very remote areas (often at the tops of mountains or deep within a national forest), constantly measuring and recording weather data. Once per hour, this data is transmitted back to government agencies who will analyze and use it to make decisions critical to the safety of the public. In the United States, FTS works closely with the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). The center’s mission is the complex interagency coordination of wildland firefighting resources for the country. One of the resources is the network of remote automated weather stations (RAWS), the vast majority of which are supplied by FTS.
