Chapada do Piauí I-III wind farm is situated in Piaui, Brazil. It was in fact brought online in and is owned by Padre Marco.
It is near Marcolândia.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A great position for a project like Chapada do Piauí I-III could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chances of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admittance to local demand or transmission capaMarcolândia.
During the planning stages the Chapada do Piauí I-III wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been vital to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps made before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows more quickly at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary close to the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is also more evident near land and is changed by landscape, surface and obstructions.
Typically, the increase 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 elevation of a turbine, then, boosts 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 set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this may not be the case in hilly areas.
Chapada do Piauí I-III turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with 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.
