Turguttepe wind farm is located in Ciego de Ávila, Cuba. It was finished in 1999 and is owned by .
It is near Turiguanó.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
A great location for a project like Turguttepe could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum chances of sudden effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine like included if Turguttepe was not built near local demand or transmission capaTuriguanó.
During the planning stages the Turguttepe wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. However, Turguttepe wind farm would have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been essential to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Winds around Turiguanó are analysed for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to performin a project like Turguttepe. This is because of drag The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is more distinct near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Ciego de Ávilas wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, increases the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted 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. However this may not be the case in hilly areas.
Turguttepe turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to every turbine site.
