Measurement System for Wind and Waves Characteristics Registration on the Silm Lake
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: This paper describes the system for registration of waves and wind disturbance. Ultrasonic anemometer measures wind parameters. Capacitor sensor is used for measurement of wave height. The wave sensor changes its capacitance according to the immersion of the sensor in water. The measurement system is controlled by the microprocessor system, which collects data from the sensors and retransmit them to the computer via radio modem. The system is used for design and simulation of control systems for isomorphic ship models on the Silm Lake near Ilawa, Poland.
