CIGRE TB601 guide for thermal rating calculations recommends the use of ultrasonic anemometers over mechanical devices . This paper aims to compare the mechanical and ultrasonic wind speed measurement technologies for the purpose of dynamic ampacity rating. The comparison consists of applying the measurements of both anemometers (placed in the same spot) to the computation of ampacity in the same overhead line, and evaluating the diferences at different speed ranges.
