Corredor do Senandes IV wind project was installed in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil It was finished in 2015 and is owned by .
It is near Rio Grande.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A great place for a project like Corredor do Senandes IV might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum probability of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover access to local demand or transmission capaRio Grande.
Before development, Corredor do Senandes IV was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Rio Grande would have been a major element in the development choice Winds around Rio Grande are analysed for over a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits faster at higher altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and it is more distinct near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and obstructions.
Sometimes, the growth of wind speeds with raising elevation follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out so they really don’t affect each other. But micrositing optimizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Corredor do Senandes IV turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric energy is improved in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to every turbine site.
