Edelsfeld wind farm is situated in Bavaria, Germany. It was finished in 2012 and is owned by Municipality Edelsfeld.
It is near Edelsfeld.
See below for data.
As a rule, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or greater.
The best destination for a project like Edelsfeld could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum chances of abrupt potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine Municipality Edelsfeld like Municipality Edelsfeld involved if Edelsfeld was not built near local demand or transmission capaEdelsfeld.
During the planning stages the Edelsfeld wind farm would have been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for accurate 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 as a way to finance the project. Winds around Edelsfeld are examined for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits swifter at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is more evident near land and is altered by landscape, surface and obstacles.
Commonly, the increase of wind speeds with raising elevation follows a wind profile power law, which anticipates that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing optimizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Edelsfeld are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is elevated in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to every turbine site.
