Altheimer-Höhe wind farm is situated in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It was in fact brought online in 2000 and is owned by Windpark Altheimer Höhe GmbH & Co. KG.
It is near Altheimer-Höhe.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
An ideal destination for a project like Altheimer-Höhe could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum likelihood of sudden effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore access to local demand or transmission capaAltheimer-Höhe.
Before building, Altheimer-Höhe was most likely screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. However, Altheimer-Höhe wind farm would have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been important to determining site potential in order to fund the project. Winds around Altheimer-Höhe are examined for at least a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows more rapidly at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is also more evident near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and limitations.
Generally, the growth of wind speeds with increasing height 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 anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the expected 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 this might not be the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Altheimer-Höhe are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and possibly roads to each and every turbine site.
