Mesihovina Mrkodol wind project was installed in Canton 10, Bosnia-Herzegovina It was completed in 2013 and is owned by Elektroprivreda.
It is near Tomislavgrad.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
The best place for a project like Mesihovina Mrkodol might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum probability of sudden powerful bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine Elektroprivreda like Elektroprivreda involved if Mesihovina Mrkodol was not built near local demand or transmission capaTomislavgrad.
During the planning stages the Mesihovina Mrkodol wind farm would’ve been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. However, Mesihovina Mrkodol wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Site data around Tomislavgrad is a major factor in the development final decision Local winds are often checked for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps made before wind generators are installed.
The wind hits faster at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary at the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more pronounced near land and is altered by topography, surface and obstacles.
Commonly, the rise of wind speeds with raising height follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, boosts the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated 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. But micrositing increases placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Mesihovina Mrkodol are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each and every turbine site.
