Leading edge erosion of wind turbine blades has been identified as the main factor substantially reducing both blade lifetimes and energy output over time. Field repairs are costly due to lost availability and challenging access, work and weather conditions [1]. During the wind farm planning stage, the lack of validated methods to estimate the overall cost of erosion causes uncertainty in the investment decisions, again raising the levelised cost of energy.
