Äskekärr wind farm is situated in Västra Götaland County, Sweden. It was created in 2011 and is owned by .
It is near Töreboda municipality.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or bigger.
The best destination for a project like Äskekärr could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chances of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is furthermore admission to local requirement or transmission capaTöreboda municipality.
Before building, Äskekärr was most likely screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been important to determining site potential as a way to finance the project. Winds around Töreboda municipality are analysed for at least a year or so plus the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows sooner at greater altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary near the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more obvious near land and is changed by geography, surface and obstructions.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This forecasts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the height of a turbine, then, increases the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out to make sure they don’t affect one another. But micrositing optimizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Äskekärr turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric energy is elevated in voltage with 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 perhaps roads to each turbine site.
