Benaičia wind farm is located in Klaipėda, Lithuania. It was completed in 2007 and is owned by .
It is near Benaičia.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
An ideal position for a project like Benaičia would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum chance of sudden effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine like included if Benaičia was not built near local demand or transmission capaBenaičia.
During the planning stages the Benaičia wind farm would’ve been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Site data around Benaičia would have been a major factor in the ‘development’ choice Winds around Benaičia are evaluated for over a year or so plus the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playwithin a project like Benaičia. This is because of drag The boost in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is changed by terrain, surface and limitations.
Normally, the rise of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, increases the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they’re spaced out so they don’t affect each other. But micrositing optimizes placement, specifically in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Benaičia are interconnected 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 with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to every turbine site.
