Wind Farms

For wind farms, long-term data are a necessity, and data should be collected on site for 2 to 3 years. Then the questions are: What is the long term annual variability? and How well can you predict the energy production for a wind farm? The siting of turbines over an area the size of a wind farm, about 5-20 km2, is termed micrositing. Thus, the wind turbines should be located within the wind farm to maximize annual energy production, which gives the largest financial return. Array losses have to be considered in the siting process.
