Carondio y Muriellos wind farm is located in Asturias, Spain. It was created in 2012 and is owned by EDP Renovaveis.
It is near Allande, Villayón and Illano.
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or greater.
The best destination for a project like Carondio y Muriellos might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chances of sudden effective bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also access to local requirement or transmission capaAllande, Villayón and Illano.
Before development, Carondio y Muriellos was most likely screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. However, Carondio y Muriellos wind farm would have needed more than just meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been important to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Local winds are frequently examined for a year or more, and detailed wind maps built before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows more rapidly at higher altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most remarkable near the surface and is impacted by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is altered by geography, surface and hurdles.
Commonly, the increase of wind speeds with escalating height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, raises 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 defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing optimizes placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Carondio y Muriellos are interconnected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to every turbine site.
