Buchfeld wind project was installed in Lorraine, France It was created in 2007 and is owned by .
It is near .
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
The best destination for a project like Buchfeld could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum probability of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover admission to local requirement or transmission capa.
During the planning stages the Buchfeld wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. However, Buchfeld wind farm might have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been vital to determining site potential in order to fund the project. 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 hits quicker at greater altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more pronounced near land and is transformed by geography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated 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 optimizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Buchfeld are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is improved 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 perhaps access roads to every turbine site.
