Casone Romano 1 wind project was installed in Apulia, Italy It was brought online in 1999 and is owned by Nuova Cimosa Daunia (NCD).
It is near Foggia,Casone Romano.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The best position for a project like Casone Romano 1 could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum probability of abrupt potent bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also access to local demand or transmission capaFoggia,Casone Romano.
Before development, Casone Romano 1 was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been essential to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Local winds are frequently checked for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps created before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows sooner at higher altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more distinct near land and is altered by terrain, surface and limitations.
Ordinarily, the rise of wind speeds with increasing elevation follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, raises the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Casone Romano 1 are connected 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 possibly access roads to every turbine site.
