Ascoli Satriano project wind farm is located in Apulia, Italy. It was completed in 2010 and is owned by .
It is near .
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The very best location for something similar to Ascoli Satriano project would be a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover admittance to local requirement or transmission capa.
Before construction, Ascoli Satriano project was most likely screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Site data around would have been a major aspect in the ‘development’ decision Winds around are evaluated for at least a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits more quickly at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more evident near land and is altered by topography, surface and obstructions.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, raises the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they’re spaced out so that they don’t affect one another. But micrositing increases placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Ascoli Satriano project turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using 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 possibly access roads to each turbine site.
