Satellites, drones, virtual sensors … - Wind Power Industry is stepping into the future redrawn from the sci-fi novels and you need to keep your hand on pulse of the advancing technology.
Predictive management model is taking over the reactive one setting up Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics as a base for precise and agile forecasts both for expected wind farm production rates and for overall wind farm performance.
Underperformance of the find turbines is a volatile factor connected both to weather conditions and the O&M; issues appearing during the turbine lifespan. Data-based O&M; management helps to mitigate underperformance-causing factors and establish sustainable production.
The lifespan itself can be estimated and prolonged with based on statistical models of possible failures and realtime-data-driven maintenance.
The age of Big Data provides numerous opportunities for optimization and the only thing required from the industry developers is to go with the wind utilizing steadily appearing tools and techniques and upgrading their sites to the self-sustainable agile models.
