Duerrwangen wind farm is situated in Bavaria, Germany. It was finished in 2012 and is owned by Juwi.
It is near Dürrwangen.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The very best location for something similar to Duerrwangen would be a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine Juwi like Juwi included if Duerrwangen was not built near local demand or transmission capaDürrwangen.
Before building, Duerrwangen was probably screened on the foundation 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.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been essential to determining site potential in order to fund the project. Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and detailed wind maps constructed before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows more rapidly at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is transformed by geography, surface and hurdles.
Ordinarily, the rise of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a length 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 Duerrwangen are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using 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 possibly access roads to every turbine site.
