Boussac 2 wind farm is situated in Centre, France. It was in fact brought online in 2011 and is owned by .
It is near Saint-Marien.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or greater.
A great location for a project like Boussac 2 would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, having a minimum chance of sudden effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is furthermore admittance to local requirement or transmission capaSaint-Marien.
Before construction, Boussac 2 was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Boussac 2 wind farm might have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been important to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Local winds are frequently checked for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps constructed before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows speedier at higher altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary at the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is more evident near land and is transformed by topography, surface and obstacles.
Sometimes, the increase of wind speeds with increasing height 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 expected power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing increases placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Boussac 2 turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps access roads to each and every turbine site.
