Economic analysis of condition monitoring systems for wind turbine sub-systems

Research output: ResearchPoster

The growth of the number and size of turbines installed worldwide has been large in recent years. The capital costs involved in the development and installation of wind farms have also increased. To ensure the maximum return on investment, operators are looking to maximize turbine availability and minimize Operation and Maintenance (O&M) costs. Condition Monitoring (CM) systems and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems allow Condition Based Maintenance plans (CbM) to be used which offer possible O&M savings over both Failure based Maintenance (FbM) and Preventive Maintenance (PM) strategies.
