Cösitz wind project was installed in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany It was created in 2010 and is owned by .
It is near Cösitz.
See below for data.
For the most part, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
A great position for a project like Cösitz might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum chance of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore admittance to local demand or transmission capaCösitz.
Before building, Cösitz was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site info around Cösitz is a major aspect in the ‘development’ choice Winds around Cösitz are evaluated for over a year or so alongside the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits faster at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most remarkable at the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more pronounced near land and is transformed by topography, surface and obstacles.
Normally, the growth of wind speeds with raising elevation follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, increases the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Cösitz are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each turbine site.
