Beveren-Waas wind farm is situated in East Flanders, Belgium. It was created in 2009 and is owned by .
It is near Beveren-Waas.
See below for data.
For the most part, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or more.
An ideal place for a project like Beveren-Waas would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum chance of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine like associated if Beveren-Waas was not built near local demand or transmission capaBeveren-Waas.
Before construction, Beveren-Waas was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Beveren-Waas would have been a major element in the ‘development’ choice Local winds are frequently monitored for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps constructed before wind generators are installed.
The wind hits speedier at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more evident near land and is altered by terrain, surface and hurdles.
Sometimes, the rise of wind speeds with escalating elevation follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
In general, a distance 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 Beveren-Waas are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
