Bognie Farm wind project was installed in Northern Scotland, UK It was finished in 2013 and is owned by .
It is near Forres.
See below for data.
In most cases, economic wind machines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or more.
A great position for a project like Bognie Farm could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, with a minimum chance of sudden powerful bursts of wind. An essential aspect of turbine siting is moreover access to local demand or transmission capaForres.
During the planning stages the Bognie Farm wind farm would’ve been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for accurate siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been vital to determining site potential as a way to fund the project. Local winds are frequently checked for a year or more, and comprehensive wind maps created before wind generators are installed.
The wind hits more rapidly at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most extraordinary at the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also more pronounced near land and is altered by landscape, surface and limitations.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Northern Scotlands wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, increases the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing increases placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Bognie Farm turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and perhaps roads to each and every turbine site.
