Casalvecchio di Puglia – Terra di conte wind project was installed in Foggia, Italy It was completed in 2012 and is owned by .
It is near Casalvecchio di Puglia.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
An ideal position for a project like Casalvecchio di Puglia – Terra di conte could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum likelihood of sudden potent bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover access to local requirement or transmission capaCasalvecchio di Puglia.
During the planning stages the Casalvecchio di Puglia – Terra di conte wind farm would have been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. However, Casalvecchio di Puglia – Terra di conte wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Site data around Casalvecchio di Puglia is a major aspect in the development final decision Local winds are often watched for a year or more, and detailed wind maps constructed before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows more rapidly at higher altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most spectacular close to the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is also more obvious near land and is transformed by geography, surface and limitations.
Typically, the rise of wind speeds with increasing elevation follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, increases 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 are spaced out so they really don’t affect one another. But this may not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Casalvecchio di Puglia – Terra di conte are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and perhaps access roads to each and every turbine site.
