An anemometer is an instrument with metallic hemispheres revolving on a vertical rod used to measure speed of the wind. The term “Anemo” is derived from the Greek word which means “wind”. Anemometers are of 2 types; One that measures the velocity of wind and the other the pressure of wind. Wind velocity measurement is a major thing in many industries that deal in rotors of wind mill and its parts. Mostly they measure the wind velocity by using a wired anemometer. In our project, we have used a buzzer that will be activated whenever the wind suddenly stops or the velocity of the wind is lowered. This will give an indication to the Wind Power Station that the wind is not present and the electricity cannot be generated. Thus the operator will come to know about the same.
The task of supervision of machinery and industrial processes on a routine basis can be an excruciatingly tiresome job. Always being by the side a machine or being on a 24×7 patrol duty around the assembly line equipment checking the temperature levels, water levels, oil level and performing other checks would be considered a wastage of the expertise of the technician on trivial tasks. But, to get rid of this burdensome task, the engineers devised equipments and sensors that would prevent or at least reduce the frequency of these routine checks. As a result of that, control systems and it’s various off springs like SCADA systems were formed. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) offers the ease of monitoring of sensors placed at distances, from one central location.
