Breddenberg wind project was set up in Lower Saxony, Germany It was completed in 2003 and is owned by ENOVA.
It is near Breddenberg.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
A perfect destination for a project like Breddenberg would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum chances of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover admittance to local requirement or transmission capaBreddenberg.
Before development, Breddenberg was probably screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not ample for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been essential to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Local winds are often supervised for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps constructed before wind generators are installed.
The wind hits swifter at greater altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is more distinct near land and is changed by terrain, surface and obstructions.
Generally, the rise of wind speeds with raising elevation follows a wind profile power law, which anticipates that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, boosts the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing optimizes placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Breddenberg turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each turbine site.
