It is near Lufeng, Shanwei City.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best location for a project like Dabu would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum chance of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also access to local demand or transmission capaLufeng, Shanwei City.
Before construction, Dabu was probably screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been important to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Winds around Lufeng, Shanwei City are examined for at least a year or so plus the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows quicker at greater altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more obvious near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and obstructions.
Ordinarily, the growth of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, increases the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing maximizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Dabu are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that 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 perhaps roads to each turbine site.
