Ashikaga wind project was installed in Tochigi, Japan It was finished in 2004 and is owned by .
It is near Ashikaga City.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The best destination for something such as Ashikaga would be a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine like involved if Ashikaga was not built near local demand or transmission capaAshikaga City.
Before construction, Ashikaga was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been vital to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Winds around Ashikaga City are analysed for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows faster at greater altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most remarkable close to the surface and is impacted by landscape, 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 height of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out so they don’t affect one another. But micrositing optimizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Ashikaga turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to each turbine site.
