Bruyère Grand wind farm is situated in Lorraine, France. It was created in 2013 and is owned by Allianz.
It is near Bruyère.
See below for data.
As a general rule, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
An ideal location for a project like Bruyère Grand could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum chances of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore admittance to local requirement or transmission capaBruyère.
Before development, Bruyère Grand was probably screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Bruyère Grand wind farm might have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Collection 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 Bruyère 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 increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and limitations.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing increases placement, specially in hilly areas.
Bruyère Grand turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each and every turbine site.
