Bayuan wind farm is situated in Hebei, China. It was in fact brought online in 2012 and is owned by Guohua Energy Investment, Shenhua Group.
It is near Guyuan County.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
The best location for a project like Bayuan would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum probability of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine Guohua Energy Investment, Shenhua Group like Guohua Energy Investment, Shenhua Group involved if Bayuan was not built near local demand or transmission capaGuyuan County.
During the planning stages the Bayuan wind farm would’ve been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site data around Guyuan County is a major aspect in the ‘development’ final decision Local winds are often examined for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps created before wind generators are installed.
The wind hits faster at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is also more evident near land and is changed by geography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This forecasts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, enhances the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted 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. However this is not always the way it is in hilly areas.
Bayuan turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to each turbine site.
