Abstract

This contribution presents two new drag based anemometers for highly resolved atmospheric flow measurements. Although both sensors are based on the same measuring principle, they are designed to meet significantly different requirements. The 2D Laser-Cantilever-Anemometer is intended for small scale velocity and direction investigations with frequencies in the order of several kHz. The sphere anemometer is designed to be a robust and higher resolving alternative to commonly used sensors in wind energy such as cup anemometers.
