Cortijo La Linera wind project was installed in Málaga, Spain It was completed in and is owned by Onshore.
It is near Campillos.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best destination for something such as Cortijo La Linera would be a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover access to local requirement or transmission capaCampillos.
During the planning stages the Cortijo La Linera wind farm would have 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 data around Campillos would have been a major factor in the ‘development’ choice Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and detailed wind maps made before wind generators are installed.
Altitude would also possess a part to performwithin a project like Cortijo La Linera. This is due to drag The boost in velocity with altitude is most spectacular close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is more distinct near land and is altered by geography, surface and obstacles.
Sometimes, the rise 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. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Cortijo La Linera turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
