Coppenbrügge wind project was installed in Lower Saxony, Germany It was brought online in 2004 and is owned by .
It is near Coppenbrügge.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
The best destination for something like Coppenbrügge is a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine like involved if Coppenbrügge was not built near local demand or transmission capaCoppenbrügge.
Before building, Coppenbrügge was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Coppenbrügge would have been a major aspect in the development decision Winds around Coppenbrügge are analysed for at least a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits sooner at greater altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is transformed by topography, surface and obstacles.
Normally, the rise of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, increases the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they’re spaced out so they don’t affect each other. But this is not always the way it is in hilly areas.
Coppenbrügge turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is increased in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and possibly roads to each turbine site.
