Conceptual approach to study of wind flow parameters computer monitoring has been created on the basis of the appropriate information program and the methodology for assessing the wind power. Structure of the monitoring program covers: the purpose and tasks of monitoring the parameters of the wind flow, e.g. the speed and direction of the wind for the certain period in  accordance  with  the  chosen  site  for  the  establishment  of  meteopost  in  obedience  to  the  optimal  criteria  of  wind  energy efficiency.

The methodology  includes:  a method  for  registering  a wind  stream,  based  on  the  choice  of  the method  of  automated registration and the creation of a computer control system for wind flow at the site of the region. The method of data registration is the location of the sensor-anemometer and weathervane at a height of 27 meters, which is due to the location of the bottom of the wheel  turbine  generator  at  a  given  height  and  the  transfer  of  the  data  to  the  server.  Experimental  data  from  meteoposts  are processed, recorded for further visualization in the form of graphs of velocity and wind direction and the construction of the winds of  rocks,  which  is  a  criterion  for  determining  the  optimal  location  of  generators.  According  to  the  determined  wind  power potential, the choice of type of wind turbine generators is substantiated.

The developed computer monitoring system of wind streams is designed for accurate analysis of the wind power of the area and detailed testing of available mathematical models of wind turbine generators. The visualization spectra of the change in wind velocity and the changes in the direction of the wind flow give an integral representation of the wind power in the area and serve as the  source  vector  for  forecasting  the  generation  of  electricity  from  wind  power.  The  computerized  system  for  selecting  the parameters of the wind in the proposed area with great precision and resolution in time is the basis for accurately predicting the practical feasibility of installing wind power stations in the regions of Ukraine.
