Abstract : High quality measuring equipment ensures a successful wind measurement campaign. Inaccurate wind measurements result in losses of seven digit economic figures. Wind monitoring is very essential in wind industry. As wind is intermittent in nature, continuous monitoring is needed for wind potential assessments prior to setting up a wind park and for Wind Park monitoring once the wind park is in operation. In this paper development of a system to record and analyze parameters like wind speed, wind direction, pressure and temperature using LabVIEW is reported. Interfacing is done using data acquisition system. Also current and voltage from utility feeder are also monitored to measure power and power factor. © 2013 IEEE.
