Dradenau wind farm is located in Hamburg, Germany. It was finished in 2010 and is owned by .
It is near Dradenau.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A perfect location for a project like Dradenau could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum chances of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine like involved if Dradenau was not built near local demand or transmission capaDradenau.
Before construction, Dradenau was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not ample for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been crucial to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Winds around Dradenau are examined for at least a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows swifter at greater altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most remarkable close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is changed by geography, surface and hurdles.
Generally, the increase of wind speeds with increasing height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, increases the expected 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 micrositing maximizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Dradenau are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage with 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 perhaps access roads to each and every turbine site.
