Auersthal wind farm is located in Niederösterreich (Lower Austria), Austria. It was finished in 2006 and is owned by WEB Windenergie.
It is near Auersthal.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
An ideal destination for a project like Auersthal would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, having a minimum chances of abrupt potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover admission to local requirement or transmission capaAuersthal.
Before construction, Auersthal was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been vital to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Local winds are often examined for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps built before wind generators are set up.
The wind hits speedier at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is more evident near land and is changed by terrain, surface and hurdles.
Almost always, the rise of wind speeds with raising height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, enhances the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this may not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Auersthal are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to every turbine site.
