Aghnagar Road 1 wind project was installed in Northern Ireland, UK It was brought online in 2014 and is owned by .
It is near Sixmilecross.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
A great place for a project like Aghnagar Road 1 would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, having a minimum probability of sudden effective bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine like included if Aghnagar Road 1 was not built near local demand or transmission capaSixmilecross.
During the planning stages the Aghnagar Road 1 wind farm would’ve been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Site info around Sixmilecross would have been a major aspect in the development choice Local winds are often checked for a year or more, and detailed wind maps created before wind generators are set up.
The wind blows more rapidly at greater altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The surge in velocity with altitude is most spectacular near the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is changed by landscape, surface and obstructions.
Almost always, the growth of wind speeds with raising height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, increases the predicted wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is defined between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this may not be the way it is in hilly areas.
Aghnagar Road 1 turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage with 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 possibly access roads to each turbine site.
