Bollingstedt wind farm is located in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It was completed in 2010 and is owned by .
It is near Bollingstedt.
See below for data.
As a rule, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
An ideal position for a project like Bollingstedt would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum probability of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine like involved if Bollingstedt was not built near local demand or transmission capaBollingstedt.
During the planning stages the Bollingstedt wind farm would have been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Site data around Bollingstedt is a major factor in the ‘development’ decision Winds around Bollingstedt are analysed for over a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows sooner at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary close to the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is transformed by topography, surface and obstructions.
Sometimes, the growth of wind speeds with growing elevation follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, enhances the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out so that they don’t affect each other. But micrositing maximizes placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Bollingstedt are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is improved in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and probably roads to every turbine site.
