Crossness Sewage Treatment Works wind project was set up in South East England, UK It was finished in 2014 and is owned by .
It is near London.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule demand wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or higher.
The best destination for something like Crossness Sewage Treatment Works would be a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. An important factor of turbine siting is moreover admission to local demand or transmission capaLondon.
During the planning stages the Crossness Sewage Treatment Works wind farm would’ve been checked and validated through wind measurements. However, Crossness Sewage Treatment Works wind farm might have needed more than simply meteorological data and measurements.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction would have been vital to determining site potential to be able to fund the project. Winds around London are analysed for over a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows more rapidly at higher altitudes as a result of reduced effect of drag. The increase in velocity with altitude is most spectacular close to the surface and is impacted by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity boosts with altitude and is more pronounced near land and is altered by terrain, surface and obstacles.
Wind speeds growing with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This anticipates wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, raises the anticipated wind speeds by 10%, and the predicted 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 is not always the case in hilly areas.
Crossness Sewage Treatment Works turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric energy 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 perhaps roads to each turbine site.
