Pometeno Brdo wind project was installed in Dalmatia, Croatia It was brought online in 2012 and is owned by .
It is near near Dugopolje and Split.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best position for a project like Pometeno Brdo could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chance of sudden effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover access to local demand or transmission capanear Dugopolje and Split.
Before development, Pometeno Brdo was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not ample for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around near Dugopolje and Split would have been a major element in the development decision Local winds are frequently monitored for a year or more, and detailed wind maps made before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows more quickly at higher altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more obvious near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and hurdles.
Typically, the growth of wind speeds with escalating height follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, increases the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they’re spaced out so they don’t affect each other. But this isn’t necessarily the situation in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Pometeno Brdo are interconnected 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 enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to each and every turbine site.
