Hi all. My little sister is finally getting through high school and is asking about things she could try for a science fair. The teacher has already shot down a few ideas, so she asked me for a more difficult project. The city that she lives in and I grew up in is proposing building a wind farm. Personally, I am anti-wind energy, but that is a different topic. I proposed to her to do a feasibility study for wind power, based on the effective wind energy in our city compared to the national average. This would involve taking wind data, ideally continually through the day, and graphing it. We could then adjust the readings for height based on some sort of boundary layer theory to get an effective wind speed at height. Now, I've looked around for digital anemometers and they bitchin' expensive; upwards of $600. She's a high school student so she has like a $50 budget. I seen a "tutorial" on instructables that builds a home made anemometer from spare "cups" a couple R/C bearings and a bike speed sensor: http://www.instructables.com/id/Digital-Anemometer-wind-meter/ My question is if anyone knows a way to export this data to computer for post processing. Perhaps there is simply a particular gauge that can export, or someone knows a method that might be useful.
