Coomagearlaghy II wind farm is located in Kerry, Ireland. It was completed in 2009 and is owned by .
It is near Coomagearlaghy.
See below for data.
As a rule, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
The best location for something such as Coomagearlaghy II would be a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admission to local requirement or transmission capaCoomagearlaghy.
Before building, Coomagearlaghy II was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. However, Coomagearlaghy II wind farm might have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been imperative to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Winds around Coomagearlaghy are examined for at least a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows more quickly at higher altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is altered by geography, surface and obstructions.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Kerrys wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing maximizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Coomagearlaghy II are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage using 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 possibly roads to each and every turbine site.
