Dingle-Skogen wind farm is situated in Västra Götaland County, Sweden. It was completed in 2013 and is owned by Rabbalshede Kraft.
It is near Munkedal municipality.
See below for data.
Generally speaking, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
A great place for a project like Dingle-Skogen could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year round, with a minimum chance of abrupt effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also admission to local requirement or transmission capaMunkedal municipality.
During the planning stages the Dingle-Skogen wind farm would’ve been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction could have been vital to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Winds around Munkedal municipality are evaluated for over a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playin a project like Dingle-Skogen. This is because of drag The boost in velocity with altitude is most dramatic near the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and it is more pronounced near land and is altered by landscape, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they’re spaced out in order that they don’t affect each other. But micrositing increases placement, specially in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Dingle-Skogen are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, that medium-voltage electric current is increased in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to each turbine site.
