Dunas de Paracuru wind project was installed in Ceará, Brazil It was brought online in 2012 and is owned by Ventos do Brasil, Inversiones Teneria.
It is near Paracuru.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
The very best destination for something like Dunas de Paracuru would be a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also admittance to local requirement or transmission capaParacuru.
Before development, Dunas de Paracuru was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Dunas de Paracuru wind farm might have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Site data around Paracuru is a major element in the ‘development’ conclusion Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps constructed before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows sooner at greater altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more obvious near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and limitations.
Generally, the rise of wind speeds with escalating elevation follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this might not be the situation in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Dunas de Paracuru are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is improved 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 perhaps access roads to each turbine site.
