Devarkulam (Grace Infrastructure) 31 MW wind farm is situated in Tamil Nadu, India. It was brought online in 2007 and is owned by Grace Infrastructure (P) Ltd.
It is near Tirunelveli.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A perfect location for a project like Devarkulam (Grace Infrastructure) 31 MW could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum chance of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore access to local requirement or transmission capaTirunelveli.
During the planning stages the Devarkulam (Grace Infrastructure) 31 MW wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. However, Devarkulam (Grace Infrastructure) 31 MW wind farm might have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been important to determining site potential in order to fund the project. Winds around Tirunelveli are analysed for at least a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits swifter at greater altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable at the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more obvious near land and is changed by topography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This forecasts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the height 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 about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this might not be the situation in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Devarkulam (Grace Infrastructure) 31 MW 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 enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to every turbine site.
