Asideroto (Agios Vasilios) wind farm is located in Crete, Greece. It was created in 2013 and is owned by Union Energy.
It is near Agios Vasilios.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule need wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best destination for a project like Asideroto (Agios Vasilios) could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum probability of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine Union Energy like Union Energy included if Asideroto (Agios Vasilios) was not built near local demand or transmission capaAgios Vasilios.
Before construction, Asideroto (Agios Vasilios) was probably screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Asideroto (Agios Vasilios) wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been important to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps created before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows more rapidly at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most remarkable close to the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more pronounced near land and is transformed by terrain, surface and limitations.
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, increases the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing optimizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Asideroto (Agios Vasilios) are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and probably access roads to each and every turbine site.
