Campo das Cruces wind farm is located in Pontevedra, Spain. It was in fact brought online in 2008 and is owned by Arcos de Grava.
It is near Forcarei.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A perfect position for a project like Campo das Cruces could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chance of abrupt potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine Arcos de Grava like Arcos de Grava involved if Campo das Cruces was not built near local demand or transmission capaForcarei.
Before development, Campo das Cruces was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been essential to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Winds around Forcarei are evaluated for over a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits quicker at greater altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is changed by terrain, surface and limitations.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Pontevedras wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the altitude of a turbine, then, boosts the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected 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 micrositing increases placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Campo das Cruces are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage using 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 each and every turbine site.
