Brünnstadt wind project was installed in Bavaria, Germany It was completed in 2014 and is owned by ABO Wind.
It is near Brünnstadt.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
An ideal location for a project like Brünnstadt would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chances of sudden potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover access to local demand or transmission capaBrünnstadt.
During the planning stages the Brünnstadt wind farm would have been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Brünnstadt is a major element in the development decision Local winds are frequently monitored for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps created before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows quicker at greater altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary close to the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is changed by terrain, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, enhances the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this may not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Brünnstadt turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and probably access roads to each turbine site.
