Altertheim wind farm is situated in Bavaria, Germany. It was in fact brought online in 2014 and is owned by Green City Energy.
It is near Altertheim.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
An ideal location for a project like Altertheim would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum likelihood of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore access to local requirement or transmission capaAltertheim.
During the planning stages the Altertheim wind farm would have been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been crucial to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Local winds are frequently monitored for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps created before wind generators are set up.
The wind hits more quickly at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more distinct near land and is altered by terrain, surface and obstacles.
Typically, the growth of wind speeds with growing elevation follows a wind profile power law, which anticipates that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, increases the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this may not be the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Altertheim are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric energy is elevated 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 probably access roads to every turbine site.
