Bennett Creek wind project was installed in Idaho, USA It was brought online in 2009 and is owned by .
It is near Elmore County.
See below for data.
As a general rule, economic wind generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or more.
A great place for a project like Bennett Creek would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind throughout the year, having a minimum probability of abrupt potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you would not get a turbine like included if Bennett Creek was not built near local demand or transmission capaElmore County.
During the planning stages the Bennett Creek wind farm would have been checked and confirmed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not enough for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Assortment of site-specific data for wind speed and direction might have been crucial to determining site potential in order to fund the project. Winds around Elmore County are examined for at least a year or so alongside the development of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
Altitude would also have a part to playwithin a project like Bennett Creek. This is because of drag The increase in velocity with altitude is most remarkable close to the surface and is affected by topography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity increases with altitude and is more distinct near land and is changed by geography, surface and limitations.
Almost always, the rise of wind speeds with growing height follows a wind profile power law, which forecasts that wind speed rises proportionately to the seventh root of altitude. Increasing the height of a turbine, then, enhances the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated 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. But micrositing optimizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Bennett Creek turbines are related via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this medium-voltage electric energy is increased in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Construction of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and possibly access roads to each turbine site.
