Load monitoring to optimize the O&M strategy for offshore wind farms

Facts
Date: 2013-06-12T13:00:00
Location: Warsaw
Presenter: Luc Rademakers, Senior Researcher Wind Energy Systems, ECN
Conference: SKF 8th Annual Wind Farm Management Conference

Summary

Operation and maintenance of offshore wind turbines is a major cost driver for offshore wind energy. To lower the O&M Costs, ECN is executing an R&D program on low cost load monitoring (LoadWizard) to allow for condition based maintenance. The LoadWizard concept will be discussed and consists of 3 parts: Low cost and reliable load sensors based on optical fibres; Software to process the data and inform operators about the loads on all wind turbines in the farm; OPEX cost modelling tools to analyse the economic impact of the measured loads in terms of costs and downtime.
