Community Wind South wind farm is situated in Minnesota, USA. It was completed in 2012 and is owned by Juwi.
It is near Nobles County.
See below for data.
As a general rule, economic wind power generators require a wind speed of 4.5 m/s (16 km/h) or greater.
An ideal position for a project like Community Wind South would have a near constant flow of non-turbulent wind year round, with a minimum chance of sudden potent bursts of wind. Additionally, you wouldn’t get a turbine Juwi like Juwi included if Community Wind South was not built near local demand or transmission capaNobles County.
During the planning stages the Community Wind South wind farm would’ve been checked and endorsed through wind measurements. Meteorological wind data alone is usually not sufficient for exact siting of a large wind power project.
Site info around Nobles County is a major element in the development conclusion Winds around Nobles County are analysed for over a year or so plus the introduction of detailed maps. Only then are wind turbines installed.
The wind blows more rapidly at greater altitudes due to the reduced influence of drag. The rise in velocity with altitude is most dramatic close to the surface and is affected by geography, surface roughness, and upwind obstacles such as trees or buildings. Velocity rises with altitude and it is more pronounced near land and is changed by geography, surface and limitations.
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 elevation of a turbine, then, raises the expected wind speeds by 10%, and the anticipated power by 34%.
In general, a distance of 7D (7 × Rotor Diameter of the Wind Turbine) is set between each turbine in a fully developed wind farm. But micrositing maximizes placement, particularly in hilly areas.
Community Wind South turbines are connected via medium voltage lines and communications.
At a substation, this particular medium-voltage electric current is improved in voltage using a transformer for connection to the high voltage transmission system. Development of a land-based wind farm requires installation of the collector system and substation, and possibly roads to each and every turbine site.
