Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 October 1996
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Wind turbine energy systems): 27.180
significance And Use:

This test method will provide a standard for comparison of wind vanes of different types. Specifications by regulatory agencies and industrial societies (3-5) have stipulated performance values.... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the starting threshold, delay distance, and overshoot ratio of a wind vane from direct measurements in a wind tunnel. This test method is applicable only to wind vanes having measurable overshoot.

1.2 This test method provides for determination of the performance of a system consisting of a wind vane and its associated position-to-output transducer in wind tunnel flow. Use of values determined by this test method to describe performance in atmospheric flow of a wind direction measuring system incorporating the vane must be done with an understanding of the differences between the two systems and the two environments.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
