High-level design steps for a windfarm
2
1.Select site:
Wind resource, land availability, transmission availability
2.Select turbine placement on site
Wind resource, soil conditions, FAA restrictions, land agreements,constructability considerations
3.Select point of interconnection (POI)/collector sub
For sites remote from nearest transmission, decide on how to interconnect
Use collector sub, collector voltage to POI (transmission sub): lowinvestment, high losses
Use transmission sub as collector station: high investment, low losses
Decide via min of net present value (NPV){investment cost + cost of losses}
4.Design collector system
Factors affecting design: turbine placement, POI/collector sub location,terrain, reliability, landowner requirements
Decide via min of NPV{investment cost + cost of losses}
 
Topologies
3
Usually radial feeder configuration with turbines
connected in “daisy
-
chain” style
 
Usually underground cables but can be overhead
UG is often chosen because it is out of the way from construction activities
(crane travel), and ultimately of landowner activities (e.g., farming).
 A feeder string may have branch strings
