Sidi Daoud wind farm is located in Nabeul, Tunisia. It was finished in 2008 and is owned by Tunisian Company of Electricity and Gas (STEG).
It is near Sidi Daoud, near the city of El Haouaria.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The very best location for something similar to Sidi Daoud is a steady availability of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover admittance to local requirement or transmission capaSidi Daoud, near the city of El Haouaria.
During the planning stages the Sidi Daoud wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. However, Sidi Daoud wind farm might have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Site information around Sidi Daoud, near the city of El Haouaria would have been a major element in the development decision Local winds are often watched for a year or more, and detailed wind maps created before wind generators are set up.
The wind hits more rapidly at higher altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary close to the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is transformed by topography, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Nabeuls wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Increasing the elevation of a turbine, then, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a range of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is scheduled between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this may not be the situation in hilly areas.
Sidi Daoud turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric current is enhanced 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 possibly roads to every turbine site.
