Broom Hill (includes Sunnyside) wind farm is located in North East England, UK. It was completed in 2009 and is owned by EDF Energy.
It is near .
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule call for wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
A great place for a project like Broom Hill (includes Sunnyside) could have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind all year long, with a minimum likelihood of abrupt potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine EDF Energy like EDF Energy involved if Broom Hill (includes Sunnyside) was not built near local demand or transmission capa.
During the planning stages the Broom Hill (includes Sunnyside) wind farm would’ve been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not adequate for precise siting of a large wind power project.
Site info around would have been a major factor in the ‘development’ choice Winds around are evaluated for at least a year or so alongside the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to performwithin a project like Broom Hill (includes Sunnyside). This is because of drag The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind obstructions such as trees or buildings. Velocity grows with altitude and is more pronounced near land and is altered by topography, surface and hurdles.
Almost always, the rise of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which predicts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, raises 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 this isn’t necessarily the way it is in hilly areas.
Broom Hill (includes Sunnyside) turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this kind of medium-voltage electric energy is elevated in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Building of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and possibly roads to each turbine site.
