Ashegoda wind farm is located in Tigray, Ethiopia. It was in fact brought online in 2013 and is owned by Ethiopian Electric Power Corporation (EEPCo).
It is near Ashegoda.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The best destination for something similar to Ashegoda would be a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover admittance to local demand or transmission capaAshegoda.
Before construction, Ashegoda was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. However, Ashegoda wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been essential to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Winds around Ashegoda are analysed for over a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits quicker at higher altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most spectacular close to the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is more evident near land and is altered by geography, surface and limitations.
Almost always, the increase of wind speeds with raising height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Ashegoda turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this 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 installing of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each turbine site.
