Abstract

The goal of this project was to create a low-cost device to measure wind speed and direction without an external power supply. Through market research and WPI’s energy symposium, a method for obtaining site-specific wind data was found to be desired. By logging wind speed and direction, the device obtains site-specific wind data to help wind-turbine installers analyze the feasibility of a location for wind power production. A working prototype was established with future potential for manufacturability and design integration.
