Larnaca 1 (Aghia Anna) wind project was installed in Larnaca, Cyprus It was in fact brought online in 2011 and is owned by Iberdrola.
It is near .
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
A perfect location for a project like Larnaca 1 (Aghia Anna) would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum likelihood of sudden effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine Iberdrola like Iberdrola involved if Larnaca 1 (Aghia Anna) was not built near local demand or transmission capa.
Before construction, Larnaca 1 (Aghia Anna) was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. However, Larnaca 1 (Aghia Anna) wind farm might have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been essential to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Winds around are examined for over a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows faster at greater altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is also more obvious near land and is changed by topography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Larnacas wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, increases 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 set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing maximizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Larnaca 1 (Aghia Anna) 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 improved in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps access roads to every turbine site.
