Natural wind flow is one of the most effective energy saving methods to improve the thermal environment at the neighborhood level. The main objective of this project is to produce a useful anemometer and to measure the accuracy of the anemometer by comparing the data with Meteorological Department, Sabah. This project presents the results of wind intensity on selected residential areas in Kota Kinabalu city by taking 30 minutes interval. The wind intensity at a site can be measured by installing anemometer on top of tower. The 4 cups anemometer used was located 2 meters above the met tower with the weight of 118g and diameter of 15cm. The analog signal received by the anemometer is changed to digital signal by using Analog-to-Digital circuit and the data collected is displayed in computer programming. The data from some others places are also collected to compare the average of wind intensity in order to create sufficient wind flow and help achieve energy saving and sustainability objectives in Malaysia. The experiment had shown that wind velocity is higher during the day and lower during the night and the wind speed increases with height because of friction at the earth surface. If you're like most people, many of your leisure activities depend on the weather, this simple and cheap system can help you to prepare yourself before doing such activities.
