Dennheritz wind farm is located in Saxony, Germany. It was brought online in 2009 and is owned by .
It is near Dennheritz.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A great place for a project like Dennheritz would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum probability of sudden effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore admission to local demand or transmission capaDennheritz.
During the planning stages the Dennheritz wind farm would’ve been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been imperative to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Winds around Dennheritz are analysed for over a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows more rapidly at greater altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is also more evident near land and is altered by landscape, surface and obstructions.
Typically, the increase of wind speeds with escalating height follows a wind profile power law, which anticipates that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, increases the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted 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. But micrositing maximizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Dennheritz turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to 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 every turbine site.
