Drumbeebeg Road wind farm is located in Northern Ireland, UK. It was brought online in 2013 and is owned by .
It is near Collone.
See below for data.
Typically, economic wind turbines require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or larger.
The very best destination for something such as Drumbeebeg Road would be a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine like included if Drumbeebeg Road was not built near local demand or transmission capaCollone.
Before construction, Drumbeebeg Road was almost certainly screened on the foundation of a wind atlas, and validated with wind specifications. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for correct siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been vital to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Winds around Collone are analysed for over a year or so alongside the creation of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind hits more rapidly at higher altitudes because of the reduced effect of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most spectacular at the surface and is affected by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind hurdles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is also more distinct near land and is transformed by geography, surface and hurdles.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This predicts wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the altitude of a turbine, then, enhances the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the expected power by 34%.
The distance of 7x Rotor Diameter is placed between each turbine, ie they are spaced out so they don’t affect one another. However this is not always the case in hilly areas.
Individual turbines at Drumbeebeg Road are interlocked with a medium voltage (usually 34.5 kV) power collection system and communications network.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric current is enhanced in voltage using a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and possibly roads to every turbine site.
