Beenageeha wind farm is located in Kerry, Ireland. It was created in 2000 and is owned by RES Group.
It is near Tralee.
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
A perfect location for a project like Beenageeha could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum chance of sudden potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is furthermore access to local requirement or transmission capaTralee.
Before construction, Beenageeha was most likely screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. However, Beenageeha wind farm might have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been essential to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Winds around Tralee are evaluated for over a year or so alongside the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows faster at higher altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most remarkable at the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is more evident near land and is changed by landscape, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds increasing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, raises the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated 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. But micrositing increases placement, specially in hilly areas.
Beenageeha turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to every turbine site.
