Wind Power Performance Data Exchange – WiPPeX
VGBE Figure 1Data-supported operation and maintenance optimisation can help operators of wind turbines reduce possible downtime and identify production increases. This requires continuous monitoring or analysis of the sensor data provided. This data is key to understanding turbine performance, managing expectations of operational assets and identifying opportunities for optimising performance. Databases provide the ability to access a large heterogeneous pool of data, allowing for much more accurate identification of, for example, trends in age or deviations in plant performance. Depending on the operator’s preference, different key performance indicators can be created and benchmarks for competitors established.
