Cape Nelson South wind farm is located in Victoria, Australia. It was in fact brought online in 2009 and is owned by .
It is near .
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
The best location for something such as Cape Nelson South is a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admittance to local demand or transmission capa.
During the planning stages the Cape Nelson South wind farm would’ve been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. However, Cape Nelson South wind farm might have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been important to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Winds around are evaluated for at least a year or so alongside the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows quicker at greater altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is more distinct near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and obstacles.
Almost always, the growth of wind speeds with increasing elevation follows a wind profile power law, which anticipates that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Cape Nelson South are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably access roads to each turbine site.
