The MetOne data tab contains all the data recorded from the anemometers and wind vanes attached on the turbine tower. Wind speed, wind gust, and wind direction measurements are recorded every half hour at the 10-meter, 20-meter and 30-meter levels. These data can be used to analyze the wind resource at the facility, including common analyses like monthly averages, diurnal cycles and wind roses.
The Honeywell data tab gives you an interactive display of energy data acquired from the Honeywell WEB-201. This data gives you information over the past week about:
