Corzan wind farm is located in La Coruña, Spain. It was brought online in 2004 and is owned by Energias Especiales del Noroeste.
It is near Negreira.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The best location for something similar to Corzan is a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also admission to local demand or transmission capaNegreira.
During the planning stages the Corzan wind farm would’ve been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been essential to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Local winds are frequently checked for a year or more, and detailed wind maps built before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows quicker at greater altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and it is more pronounced near land and is altered by geography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing maximizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Corzan are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each turbine site.
