The iSpin Guardian approach allows operators to compare the performance of individual turbines in a wind farm. In its report, ECN confirms that the iSpin Guardian approach based on the presented cases is well-suited to monitoring the relative performance of the turbines in a wind farm, which can be used to identify potential performance issues and which needs to be further validated.

ECN also evaluated the potential of the iSpin Guardian approach to be used in warranty contracts between wind turbine manufacturers and wind farm operators.

  • The potential benefit for the operator: iSpin Guardian offers more means to validate the power performance of the individual wind turbines in the wind farm and the wind farm itself.
  • The potential advantage for the wind turbine manufacturer: more attractive warranty conditions could be granted, providing an advantage over competitors.

According to ECN the key aspect is the 360° iSpin based power curve and ECN advises to further validate this aspect for industry-wide acceptance.
