Drivetrain monitoring: beyond SCADA

Operations & maintenance

When: Thursday, 4 April 2019, 13:00 - 14:15
Where: Auditorium 2

Session description

Low frequency SCADA data provide a rich source of information that can be used for health monitoring of wind turbines. However, higher frequency data can give greater insights into turbine health, particularly of the drivetrain. This session will look at the use of high frequency vibration, shaft torque variation and electrical generator output in monitoring the drivetrain, and the role these can play in fault detection and lifetime assessment.
