Gangneung wind project was installed in Gangwon, South Korea It was brought online in 2013 and is owned by .
It is near .
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or greater.
The best location for something such as Gangneung is a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also access to local demand or transmission capa.
Before development, Gangneung was probably screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been imperative to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Winds around are examined for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playwithin a project like Gangneung. This is due to drag The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is altered by geography, surface and limitations.
Wind speeds increasing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Gangwons wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the predicted 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 increases placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Gangneung are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric energy is improved in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to every turbine site.
