Bickenbach wind project was installed in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany It was created in 2008 and is owned by Windkraft Brogen.
It is near Bickenbach.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A great destination for a project like Bickenbach might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, with a minimum chances of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine Windkraft Brogen like Windkraft Brogen associated if Bickenbach was not built near local demand or transmission capaBickenbach.
During the planning stages the Bickenbach wind farm would have been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Bickenbach is a major aspect in the ‘development’ final decision Winds around Bickenbach are examined for at least a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows faster at higher altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more evident near land and is changed by landscape, surface and limitations.
Generally, the increase of wind speeds with increasing elevation 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, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they’re spaced out to make sure they don’t affect one another. However this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Bickenbach are interconnected 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 using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
