By Michelle Froese The report provides concrete data and insight into several related areas of O&M for wind farms.
Once a wind farm is operational, adopting a cost-effective operations and maintenance strategy is the main path for operators to maximize ROI on wind energy. However, New Energy Update‘s latest Wind Energy O&M Report 2017 found a significant difference in the performance of predictive compared to condition-based O&M strategies.
According to the report, a scoring strategy was used to measure the performance of different sensor configurations under various key component failure scenarios. The research examined 3-MW wind turbines on a 630-MW wind farm, and smaller 2-MW
