Caetité 3 wind project was installed in Bahía, Brazil It was finished in 2014 and is owned by .
It is near Caetité.
See below for data.
As a rule, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
A great place for a project like Caetité 3 could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum probability of abrupt potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admittance to local demand or transmission capaCaetité.
Before development, Caetité 3 was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Caetité would have been a major aspect in the development decision Local winds are often watched for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps made before wind generators are set up.
The wind hits speedier at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary close to the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more evident near land and is altered by topography, surface and obstructions.
Typically, the growth of wind speeds with escalating elevation follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, enhances the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing increases placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Caetité 3 are interconnected 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 increased 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 possibly access roads to every turbine site.
