Allo d´Abara wind project was set up in Asturias, Spain It was finished in and is owned by Onshore.
It is near El Franco.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or more.
An ideal location for a project like Allo d´Abara would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum probability of sudden effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover access to local requirement or transmission capaEl Franco.
During the planning stages the Allo d´Abara wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been essential to determining site potential in order to finance the project. Local winds are often supervised for a year or more, and detailed wind maps built before wind generators are set up.
The wind hits more quickly at greater altitudes due to the reduced effect of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more pronounced near land and is altered by landscape, surface and limitations.
Typically, the increase of wind speeds with increasing height follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the elevation 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. However this is not always the way it is in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Allo d´Abara are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is elevated 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 probably roads to every turbine site.
