Alijar wind farm is situated in Cádiz, Spain. It was brought online in and is owned by Onshore.
It is near Jerez de la Frontera.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
An ideal position for a project like Alijar might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, having a minimum probability of sudden effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover access to local requirement or transmission capaJerez de la Frontera.
During the planning stages the Alijar wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site information around Jerez de la Frontera would have been a major aspect in the development final decision Winds around Jerez de la Frontera are examined for at least a year or so plus the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to performin a project like Alijar. This is due to drag The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is altered by landscape, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, increases the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this might not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Alijar turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to every turbine site.
