We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
The aim of this workshop, which is initiated by members of Wind Empowerment’s Measurement Working Group, is to build a logger to collect data from multiple sensors: an anemometer and wind vane to measure the wind speed and direction and a current/voltage transducer to measure the power produced by the turbine (for both on and off-grid systems). The data collected by this method will allow manufacturers, installers and users, as well as students, to better understand and improve the production of small wind turbines.
More information on the activities and events of the Development Week is available here: Wind Empowerment Development Week.
