Burg-Gemünden wind farm is situated in Hesse, Germany. It was brought online in 2001 and is owned by .
It is near Burg.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
The best position for a project like Burg-Gemünden could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chances of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is furthermore access to local requirement or transmission capaBurg.
During the planning stages the Burg-Gemünden wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been essential to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Winds around Burg are examined for at least a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows more quickly at higher altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is more evident near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, enhances the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out in order that they don’t affect one another. However this is not always the situation in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Burg-Gemünden are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric energy is elevated in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to every turbine site.
