Corpe wind farm is located in Pays de la Loire, France. It was completed in 2010 and is owned by Volkswind.
It is near Corpe.
See below for data.
As a general rule, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
A perfect location for a project like Corpe would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum probability of sudden potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admission to local requirement or transmission capaCorpe.
Before construction, Corpe was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been vital to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Local winds are frequently monitored for a year or more, and detailed wind maps constructed before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows quicker at greater altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is also more evident near land and is changed by geography, surface and limitations.
Ordinarily, the growth of wind speeds with growing elevation follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, increases the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out so they don’t affect one another. But this may not be the case in hilly areas.
Corpe turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
