Atlantica II wind project was set up in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil It was finished in 2014 and is owned by CPFL Renováveis.
It is near Palmares do Sul.
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
The very best location for something like Atlantica II would be a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is furthermore access to local demand or transmission capaPalmares do Sul.
Before construction, Atlantica II was most likely screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Palmares do Sul is a major aspect in the ‘development’ final decision Winds around Palmares do Sul are evaluated for at least a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playin a project like Atlantica II. This is due to drag The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more distinct near land and is transformed by geography, surface and obstacles.
Generally, the growth of wind speeds with growing 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, raises the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing increases placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Atlantica II are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is improved 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 roads to each turbine site.
