Astropeleki-Bouzoureza (Mandras – Attica) wind farm is situated in Central Greece, Greece. It was brought online in 2014 and is owned by Attica Wind Pastra.
It is near Mandras – Eidyllia.
See below for data.
As a general rule, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
The best location for a project like Astropeleki-Bouzoureza (Mandras – Attica) would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum probability of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover admission to local demand or transmission capaMandras – Eidyllia.
During the planning stages the Astropeleki-Bouzoureza (Mandras – Attica) wind farm would have been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. However, Astropeleki-Bouzoureza (Mandras – Attica) wind farm might have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been important to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Local winds are frequently examined for a year or more, and detailed wind maps created before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows quicker at greater altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more evident near land and is changed by geography, surface and obstructions.
Sometimes, the increase of wind speeds with raising height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing optimizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Astropeleki-Bouzoureza (Mandras – Attica) turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric current is increased 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 roads to each and every turbine site.
