It is near Kunming.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
An ideal destination for a project like Dafengyakou (Guodian) would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum chance of abrupt potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine China Guodian like China Guodian included if Dafengyakou (Guodian) was not built near local demand or transmission capaKunming.
During the planning stages the Dafengyakou (Guodian) wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Site data around Kunming is a major aspect in the development decision Local winds are frequently monitored for a year or more, and detailed wind maps built before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows faster at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular close to the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also more distinct near land and is altered by geography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds increasing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing optimizes placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Dafengyakou (Guodian) turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and probably access roads to each and every turbine site.
