Weather station

MET data

A purpose-built weather station is located close to both full-scale test sites. The data is fed into the SCADA system which provides real-time display. The weather stations are calibrated to national standards and record the following information:

3 second averages, minimums and maximums:

  • Wind speed (m/s)

10 minute averages, minimums and maximums:

  • Wind direction (deg)
  • Air temperature (deg C)
  • Humidity (%RH)
  • Barometric pressure (mbar)
  • Dew point (deg C)

Note: Wind speed and direction are measured by a high precision 3-axis ultrasonic anemometer located at 4m height to comply with performance standards requirements.

The meteorological data is made available to all developers via the SCADA system.
