Financially successful wind projects rely on optimal energy production. Achieving this requires that any turbine is both available and operating as it should when the wind resource provides the opportunity to do so.
We currently conduct regular Performance Monitoring for wind projects and portfolios across Europe. Our service is based on our detailed understanding of wind turbine engineering. We apply specially-developed methodology and advanced models to analyse a combination of refined atmospheric wind data for the sites and SCADA data produced by the turbines. This helps us to assess each turbine’s availability at any given time and identify and diagnose poor power curve efficiency in the wind conditions.
