Wind Sensing Windmill


Energy development is a field of endeavour focused on making sufficient energy sources to meet the needs of the society. One of the most significant contributor to electricity generation is wind energy. Normally, windmills are placed at higher altitudes, wherein wind starts blowing in more than one direction due to climatic changes and seasons. This decreases the efficiency of the windmills. For this, we place pressure sensors on the nose cone of the windmill. These pressure sensors detects several speeds of wind as well as their direction and records them. This data is transferred to the control box, wherein microcontroller is placed. This microcontroller considers maximum wind speed condition. This in turn stimulates mechanical action, wherein the Ushaped clamp, placed on a roller bearing, which is connected to the nose cone aligns itself perpendicular to the direction of the wind.
