The PDRRMC also prepared a list of vulnerable population and areas for quick evacuation plan in case of flood, landslide, lahar, coastal flood and wind surge.
Similarly, when the ambient wind surges flow over the airfoil, it produces an upward lift force; however, usually the natural wind flow and even the air surges due to moving traffic are normally fluctuating in nature; therefore, due to these wind surges, the cantilever beam and magnet attached to the airfoil will start oscillating vertically and induce an EMF in the coil.
Furthermore, the BEHs in this work are the only harvests which have the ability to extract the energy simultaneously from the bridge's vibration and wind surges (natural or traffic induced) and therefore this feature of the developed BEHs makes these exceptional than the other reported BEHs.
Moreover, it has also shown the ability to produced adequate voltage and power levels (up to 7.84 [micro]W) from wind surges from 0.5 m/s to 9 m/s.
Also new to the range is a new stability control system which controls side wind surges. It applies brakes to one side of the vehicle to reduce the effect of crosswinds.
We need to be able to respond better to wind surges, given the growing share of wind power in the European energy mix.
West Denmark is now in trouble when wind surges exceed the capacity of the interconnections.
