Atalaya I wind project was set up in Zaragoza, Spain It was finished in and is owned by Onshore.
It is near Pedrola.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or higher.
The best position for a project like Atalaya I might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, having a minimum chances of sudden powerful bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine Onshore like Onshore associated if Atalaya I was not built near local demand or transmission capaPedrola.
Before construction, Atalaya I was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not ample for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been important to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Local winds are often watched for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps made before wind generators are installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playwithin a project like Atalaya I. This is due to drag The surge in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary at the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more evident near land and is changed by topography, surface and obstructions.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, boosts the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they’re spaced out in order that they don’t affect each other. However this may not be the case in hilly areas.
Atalaya I turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is increased in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to every turbine site.
