Avignonet-Lauragais 2 wind farm is located in Midi-Pyrénées, France. It was in fact brought online in 2008 and is owned by .
It is near .
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or more.
A perfect position for a project like Avignonet-Lauragais 2 could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum chances of abrupt potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admission to local requirement or transmission capa.
During the planning stages the Avignonet-Lauragais 2 wind farm would’ve been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been important to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Local winds are frequently supervised for a year or more, and detailed wind maps built before wind generators are installed.
Altitude would also possess a part to performin a project like Avignonet-Lauragais 2. This is because of drag The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary close to the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more evident near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and obstructions.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Midi-Pyrénéess wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out so they really don’t affect each other. But this may not be the situation in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Avignonet-Lauragais 2 are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and probably access roads to each and every turbine site.
