Cruguel wind farm is situated in Bretagne, France. It was brought online in and is owned by Onshore.
It is near Cruguel.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
The best location for a project like Cruguel would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum probability of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover admission to local demand or transmission capaCruguel.
During the planning stages the Cruguel wind farm would have been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not ample for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been crucial to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Winds around Cruguel are analysed for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also possess a part to performwithin a project like Cruguel. This is because of drag The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is more distinct near land and is changed by topography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This forecasts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated 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 maximizes placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Cruguel are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and possibly roads to each and every turbine site.
