Campo dos Ventos II wind farm is located in Río Grande do Norte, Brazil. It was completed in 2015 and is owned by .
It is near João Câmara.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best destination for a project like Campo dos Ventos II could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum probability of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is furthermore admittance to local demand or transmission capaJoão Câmara.
Before building, Campo dos Ventos II was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Campo dos Ventos II wind farm would have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Site information around João Câmara would have been a major aspect in the ‘development’ final decision Winds around João Câmara are evaluated for over a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also possess a part to performin a project like Campo dos Ventos II. This is because of drag The rise in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is altered by topography, surface and limitations.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this may not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Campo dos Ventos II are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage using 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 probably access roads to each turbine site.
