Abstract

A data recording system has been designed for measurements of meteorological data and data concerning the performance of a wind turbine. Measurements were carried out on two commercially available Danish wind turbines: a 55 KW Vestangstroems wind turbine and a 30 KW Sonjeberg wind turbine. The test periods of the two wind turbines were approximately three months and two months respectively. The same measuring programme was carried out on both wind turbines, and consisted of: Long-term measurements for the determination of wind statistics, power performance, and operation time; Short-term measurements for the determination of power quality, skew wind and brake functions, and finally Supervision measurements in order to record the behaviour of the wind turbine during possible emergency situation.
