Anjo II wind project was set up in Aichi, Japan It was brought online in 2007 and is owned by .
It is near Anjo City.
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
An ideal position for a project like Anjo II would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum probability of abrupt potent bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover admittance to local requirement or transmission capaAnjo City.
Before development, Anjo II was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Anjo II wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Site data around Anjo City would have been a major aspect in the development decision Local winds are often watched for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps constructed before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows more rapidly at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is also more obvious near land and is transformed by topography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the expected 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. But this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Anjo II turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to every turbine site.
