Eoliatec del Pacifico (Santo Domingo) wind project was set up in Oaxaca, Mexico It was brought online in 2013 and is owned by EDF Energies Nouvelles.
It is near Juchitán de Zaragoza.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
A perfect destination for a project like Eoliatec del Pacifico (Santo Domingo) could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum chances of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover admittance to local demand or transmission capaJuchitán de Zaragoza.
During the planning stages the Eoliatec del Pacifico (Santo Domingo) wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been imperative to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Local winds are often supervised for a year or more, and detailed wind maps constructed before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows more quickly at higher altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is more obvious near land and is altered by terrain, surface and obstructions.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Oaxacas wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this is not always the situation in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Eoliatec del Pacifico (Santo Domingo) 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 energy is elevated 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 probably access roads to each turbine site.
