Integration of Data Analytics to Enhance Turbine Reliability
VUB figure 1In the ever-evolving landscape of renewable energy, offshore wind farms are pivotal for achieving sustainability goals. However, the economic feasibility of these farms is often hampered by higher operational costs and the cost of energy compared with onshore wind energy and conventional power sources. This article sheds light on how advancements in condition monitoring and wake optimisation are set to improve the industry. It discusses the integration of data analytics to enhance turbine reliability, alongside approaches to improve turbine efficiency through advanced control techniques. This discussion not only underscores the importance of continuous innovation in the renewable energy sector but also highlights the potential for significant cost reductions and efficiency improvements in wind energy projects.
