Moinho Velho wind farm is located in Lisbon, Portugal. It was brought online in 2004 and is owned by Enel Green Power.
It is near Lisbon.
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
The best destination for a project like Moinho Velho might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, having a minimum chance of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also admittance to local demand or transmission capaLisbon.
Before building, Moinho Velho was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. However, Moinho Velho wind farm might have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been crucial to determining site potential in order to fund the project. Winds around Lisbon are evaluated for over a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also possess a part to playwithin a project like Moinho Velho. This is because of drag The surge in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is more pronounced near land and is changed by terrain, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Lisbons wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, raises the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this might not be the case in hilly areas.
Moinho Velho turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current 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 each turbine site.
