Costa Branca (Macacos complex) wind project was set up in Río Grande do Norte, Brazil It was finished in 2015 and is owned by .
It is near João Câmara.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A perfect destination for a project like Costa Branca (Macacos complex) might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum probability of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover admittance to local requirement or transmission capaJoão Câmara.
During the planning stages the Costa Branca (Macacos complex) wind farm would have been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for accurate 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 finance the project. Winds around João Câmara are analysed for over a year or so plus the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playwithin a project like Costa Branca (Macacos complex). This is due to drag The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is more distinct near land and is changed by geography, surface and limitations.
Commonly, the growth of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which anticipates that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this might not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Costa Branca (Macacos complex) 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. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each turbine site.
