Characteristics of a Cup Anemometer and a Procedure of Measuring the Wind Velocity

Characteristics of a Cup Anemometer and a Procedure of Measuring the Wind Velocity On the basis of the data of laboratory, model, and field investigation of the characteristics of a proposed cup anemometer, we obtain the following results: the distance constant is equal to 0.32 m with a mean-square deviation of 0.05 m, which is smaller than for the other anemometers of this type by an order of magnitude, the dynamic characteristics of the anemometer are linear for typical conditions of atmospheric turbulence, the variance and spectrum of noises (as a result of transformation of pulsed signals at the output of the anemometer) are described by universal functions with known parameters, the transmission bandwidth is approximately equal to 2 Hz for wind velocities lower than 5 m/sec and up to 5 Hz for higher wind velocities, and the errors of measurements of the mean wind velocity and the characteristics of the longitudinal component of velocity are approximately equal to 1 and 3%, respectively. The dimensions and weight of the anemometer are quite small, which enables one to perform long-term measurements of the characteristics of wind velocity for all types of platforms within broad ranges of hydrometeorological conditions.
