AWST Figure1v2How to Use the Whole Potential of Wind Farm Data

Wind farm SCADA data holds an enormous potential for plant performance improvement and should be an essential tool for operation and maintenance (O&M). The proper analysis of key variables can lead to important benefits through the improvement of turbine performance, as well as cost reductions through optimisation of the O&M strategy and extension of the lifetime of components. Because of the huge amount of information contained in SCADA, specific analysis techniques need to be designed and applied to get the most from the data. In the following article, the authors explain some of the best available methods for SCADA data analysis, the most common issues identified in operational wind farms and the benefits obtained through this kind of analysis.
