Adama II wind project was installed in Oromiya, Ethiopia It was finished in 2015 and is owned by Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation (EEPCo).
It is near Between Adama and Modjo towns.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The very best location for something similar to Adama II is a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is furthermore admission to local requirement or transmission capaBetween Adama and Modjo towns.
During the planning stages the Adama II wind farm would have been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been imperative to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Winds around Between Adama and Modjo towns are examined for at least a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playin a project like Adama II. This is due to drag The boost in velocity with altitude is most remarkable at the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is more evident near land and is changed by landscape, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Oromiyas wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the expected 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 to make sure they don’t affect one another. But micrositing maximizes placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Adama II are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each turbine site.
