Beausemblant 1 wind farm is located in Rhône-Alpes, France. It was completed in 2006 and is owned by .
It is near .
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best location for something such as Beausemblant 1 would be a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore admission to local requirement or transmission capa.
During the planning stages the Beausemblant 1 wind farm would have been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around is a major factor in the ‘development’ final decision Winds around are evaluated for at least a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows sooner at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near 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 distinct near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and obstructions.
Wind speeds increasing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Rhône-Alpess 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 anticipated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out so that they don’t affect one another. But micrositing increases placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Beausemblant 1 turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each and every turbine site.
