Beckum 3 wind farm is located in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It was finished in 2010 and is owned by .
It is near Beckum.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
An ideal position for a project like Beckum 3 might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum chance of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine like involved if Beckum 3 was not built near local demand or transmission capaBeckum.
During the planning stages the Beckum 3 wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. However, Beckum 3 wind farm would have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been crucial to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Local winds are frequently examined for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps built before wind generators are installed.
Altitude would also possess a part to playin a project like Beckum 3. This is due to drag The increase in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near 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 transformed by geography, surface and hurdles.
Almost always, the increase of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which anticipates that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, enhances the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated 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 micrositing maximizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Beckum 3 are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably access roads to every turbine site.
