Aschersleben II wind project was installed in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany It was in fact brought online in 2004 and is owned by wpd.
It is near Aschersleben.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A perfect location for a project like Aschersleben II might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum chances of sudden potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine wpd like wpd involved if Aschersleben II was not built near local demand or transmission capaAschersleben.
During the planning stages the Aschersleben II wind farm would have been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been vital to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Winds around Aschersleben are analysed for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits speedier at higher altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most remarkable at the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles 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 predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, enhances the predicted 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 might not be the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Aschersleben II are interlocked 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 with 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 perhaps access roads to each turbine site.
