Löningen wind farm is located in Lower Saxony, Germany. It was brought online in 2010 and is owned by SWM.
It is near Löningen.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A perfect place for a project like Löningen would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, having a minimum likelihood of sudden effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is furthermore access to local demand or transmission capaLöningen.
Before construction, Löningen was probably screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Löningen wind farm would have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Site info around Löningen is a major aspect in the development conclusion Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps made before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows more quickly at greater altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is altered by geography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds increasing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Lower Saxonys 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 distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing maximizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Löningen turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric energy is improved in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to every turbine site.
