Farre wind project was installed in North Denmark, Denmark It was created in 2000 and is owned by .
It is near Gettrup.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A perfect place for a project like Farre might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum probability of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also access to local demand or transmission capaGettrup.
Before building, Farre was probably screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. However, Farre wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been crucial to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Winds around Gettrup are examined for over a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits swifter at higher altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most spectacular close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also more evident near land and is transformed by topography, surface and limitations.
Usually, the growth of wind speeds with increasing elevation follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, boosts the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated 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 optimizes placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Farre turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to every turbine site.
