Cambernon wind project was installed in Basse-Normandie, France It was created in 2009 and is owned by .
It is near .
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
A perfect destination for a project like Cambernon might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum probability of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also access to local demand or transmission capa.
During the planning stages the Cambernon wind farm would’ve been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. However, Cambernon wind farm might have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Site data around would have been a major factor in the ‘development’ conclusion Winds around are evaluated for at least a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows speedier at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more evident near land and is transformed by topography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds increasing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out to make sure they don’t affect one another. But micrositing optimizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Cambernon turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to each turbine site.
