Chita wind project was installed in Aichi, Japan It was created in 2005 and is owned by .
It is near Chita City.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The very best location for something such as Chita is a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also access to local demand or transmission capaChita City.
Before building, Chita was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not ample for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been important to determining site potential in order to fund the project. Winds around Chita City are examined for at least a year or so alongside the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows quicker at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable at the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is more distinct near land and is transformed by geography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling 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 are spaced out in order that they don’t affect one another. But micrositing optimizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Chita are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and perhaps access roads to each turbine site.
