Delfzijl Zuid wind farm is located in Groningen, The Netherlands. It was completed in 2007 and is owned by .
It is near Delfzijl.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The best position for a project like Delfzijl Zuid might have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, having a minimum probability of sudden effective bursts of wind. An important factor of turbine siting is also access to local requirement or transmission capaDelfzijl.
During the planning stages the Delfzijl Zuid wind farm would have been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. However, Delfzijl Zuid wind farm would have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been crucial to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Winds around Delfzijl are examined for over a year or so plus the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows swifter at higher altitudes because of the reduced influence of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most remarkable close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more distinct near land and is changed by terrain, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Groningens wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, raises 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 so they don’t affect each other. But this isn’t necessarily the situation in hilly areas.
Delfzijl Zuid turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installing of the collector system and substation, and probably roads to every turbine site.
