Düngenheim wind project was installed in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany It was brought online in 2009 and is owned by .
It is near Düngenheim.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A great position for a project like Düngenheim would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, with a minimum chance of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore admittance to local demand or transmission capaDüngenheim.
Before construction, Düngenheim was most likely screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Düngenheim would have been a major aspect in the ‘development’ decision Winds around Düngenheim are examined for over a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits quicker at higher altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most dramatic near the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is transformed by landscape, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, enhances 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 are spaced out to make sure they don’t affect each other. However this may not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Düngenheim turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current is increased in voltage using 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 probably access roads to each and every turbine site.
