Construction of an autonomous wind station (English)
Abstract [en]

Construction of an autonomous wind station was a project with the goal of creating a product that could collect wind data from a sensor and then transfer this data to a server wirelessly over the GSM network. The device would be powered by batteries and solar cells and function fully without requiring external power supply. This required that a small computer was constructed and programmed to store and send data at predetermined cycle times and programming of a server that received the sent data. The project also required optimization of power consumption and dimensioning of solar cells and batteries based on this.

 

The construction of this station demanded research both for the selection of hardware and programming software. The computer was based on a microcontroller and a GSM module that sent the data over the 2G network. An anemometer was connected to the microcontroller and measured the wind and successfully sent it to a server.

 

The device also succeeded in gathering enough solar power to compensate for the energy consumed by the device during 5 days of testing. However, to ensure continuous use, more long-term testing is needed.
