Besdorf-Bokhorst wind farm is situated in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It was in fact brought online in 1999 and is owned by .
It is near Besdorf-Bokhorst.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A great position for a project like Besdorf-Bokhorst would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum chance of abrupt potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore admission to local requirement or transmission capaBesdorf-Bokhorst.
Before construction, Besdorf-Bokhorst was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Besdorf-Bokhorst wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been vital to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Winds around Besdorf-Bokhorst are examined for over a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits faster at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, enhances the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the expected 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. However this may not be the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Besdorf-Bokhorst are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is increased in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
