Colonia (part of Energio complex) wind project was installed in Ceará, Brazil It was completed in 2014 and is owned by Queiroz Galvão Energias Renováveis.
It is near São Goncalo do Amarante.
See below for data.
As a general rule, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
A great destination for a project like Colonia (part of Energio complex) might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, with a minimum likelihood of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admittance to local demand or transmission capaSão Goncalo do Amarante.
Before building, Colonia (part of Energio complex) was most likely screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been essential to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Winds around São Goncalo do Amarante are analysed for over a year or so alongside the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also possess a part to playwithin a project like Colonia (part of Energio complex). This is because of drag The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary at the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more evident near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and limitations.
Usually, the increase of wind speeds with escalating height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, raises the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the expected 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. But micrositing optimizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Colonia (part of Energio complex) turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably access roads to every turbine site.
