Wind Measuring Mast
The Wind Measuring Mast:
- is 30 meters high
- have wind sensors at 15 and
- 30 meters
- has its own power supply
- using an off-grid solar module
- are logging measurements
- using a web solution from
The wind measuring mast was installed in February 2012.
Measures six different kinds of solar components:
- direct solar radiation
- indirect solar radiation
- global solar radiation
- plant angled solar radiation (two different)
- ground reflected radiation
and general weather parameters such as air pressure, temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind speed and wind direction.
All data is logged every six seconds in a database that is accessible to companies and researchers. The weather station (EKO Instruments Europe B.V.) is connected to a measuring system from Metrum.
The measurements are possible because the weather station is mounted on a robot that follows the sun’s movement across the sky. It is controlled by a built-in GPS for improved accuracy.
