Anna Vosdijk Polder wind farm is located in Zeeland, The Netherlands. It was brought online in 2007 and is owned by .
It is near Tholen.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
A great location for a project like Anna Vosdijk Polder might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chances of abrupt powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is also access to local requirement or transmission capaTholen.
Before construction, Anna Vosdijk Polder was most likely screened on the basis of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site info around Tholen is a major element in the development decision Local winds are frequently watched for a year or more, and detailed wind maps made before wind generators are installed.
The wind blows sooner at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and it is more pronounced near land and is altered by landscape, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds raising with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Zeelands wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, raises the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this is not always the way it is in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Anna Vosdijk Polder are connected with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric current is increased in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and perhaps access roads to every turbine site.
