Diepenau wind project was installed in Lower Saxony, Germany It was brought online in 2012 and is owned by Enercon, Stadtwerke Osnabrueck.
It is near Diepenau.
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 location for a project like Diepenau would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum chances of sudden potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine Enercon, Stadtwerke Osnabrueck like Enercon, Stadtwerke Osnabrueck associated if Diepenau was not built near local demand or transmission capaDiepenau.
During the planning stages the Diepenau wind farm would’ve been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. However, Diepenau wind farm might have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been vital to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Winds around Diepenau are examined for at least a year or so alongside the introduction 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 dramatic near the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more evident near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and limitations.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Lower Saxonys wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, enhances the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this isn’t necessarily the case in hilly areas.
Diepenau turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric energy is elevated in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and perhaps access roads to each and every turbine site.
