Dunmore wind farm is situated in Northern Ireland, UK. It was in fact brought online in 2014 and is owned by Capital Dynamics.
It is near Dunmore Town land, 8km northeast of Limavady, Co. Londonderry.
See below for data.
Wind farms, as a general rule require wind speeds of 4.5 metres per second or more.
The best location for something similar to Dunmore is a steady supply of non-turbulent wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine Capital Dynamics like Capital Dynamics associated if Dunmore was not built near local demand or transmission capaDunmore Town land, 8km northeast of Limavady, Co. Londonderry.
During the planning stages the Dunmore wind farm would have been checked and authenticated through wind measurements. However, Dunmore wind farm would have needed more than merely meteorological data and measurements.
Collection of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been essential to determining site potential to be able to finance the project. Local winds are frequently checked for a year or more, and detailed wind maps constructed before wind generators are installed.
The wind hits speedier at greater altitudes as a result of reduced influence of drag. The boost in velocity with altitude is most dramatic at the surface and is impacted by landscape, surface roughness, and upwind limitations such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and is more evident near land and is changed by landscape, surface and limitations.
Wind speeds escalating with altitude is part of a wind energy law. This Northern Irelands wind speed rises with the 7th root of altitude. Doubling the elevation of a turbine, then, boosts the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the estimated power by 34%.
In general, a length of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is about between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. However this may not be the situation in hilly areas.
Dunmore turbines are linked via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, it medium-voltage electric current is elevated in voltage with a transformer for link with the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires setting up the collector system and substation, and perhaps access roads to each and every turbine site.
