ABSTRACT

Energy production from renewable sources, such as wind energy, in small-scale generation systems can be increased by improving the efficiency of power generating equipment and expanding the applicability of the implemented technologies. The performance of wind turbines can be improved by developing solutions that expand the range of wind speeds over which energy can be effectively generated and by optimizing the location of wind turbines.
The presented system for multipoint measurement of wind parameters (SMMWP) is equipped with data transmission modules operating in the ZigBee standard. Functional ZigBee modules form a network with star configuration. To expand the network’s range, selected modules can be configured as network routers. Routers forward data packets between network terminals and the coordination module. Terminals as well as routers are networking devices.
