San Antonio El Sitio wind farm is located in Departamento de Guatemala, Guatemala. It was finished in and is owned by Onshore.
It is near Santa Elena Barillas.
See below for data.
As a general rule, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or more.
The best position for a project like San Antonio El Sitio might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum chances of abrupt effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine Onshore like Onshore involved if San Antonio El Sitio was not built near local demand or transmission capaSanta Elena Barillas.
During the planning stages the San Antonio El Sitio wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been important to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Winds around Santa Elena Barillas are examined for at least a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits speedier at higher altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is also more obvious near land and is altered by terrain, surface and obstacles.
Commonly, the increase of wind speeds with escalating height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, boosts the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this is not always the situation in hilly areas.
San Antonio El Sitio turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
