Cordal de Montouto wind farm is located in Lugo, Spain. It was in fact brought online in and is owned by Guitiriz.
It is near Cordal de Montouto.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best location for something such as Cordal de Montouto is a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also access to local requirement or transmission capaCordal de Montouto.
Before construction, Cordal de Montouto was almost certainly screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been imperative to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and detailed wind maps constructed before wind generators are set up.
The wind hits speedier at higher altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary at the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and it is more obvious near land and is changed by geography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Lugos wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, enhances the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out in order that they don’t affect one another. But this may not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Cordal de Montouto turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is enhanced in voltage using 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 possibly roads to each turbine site.
