Initial Condition Monitoring Experience on a Wind Turbine

  title={Initial Condition Monitoring Experience on a Wind Turbine},
  author={Eric Bechhoefer and Bruno Boucher},
The initial installation of a condition monitoring system (CMS) on a utility scale wind turbine produced a number of unexpected results. The CMS was installed on the TechnoCentre éolien Repower MM92. The installation allowed testing of a MEMS (microelecctromechanical system) based sensor technology and allowed and in-depth analysis of vibration data and revolutions per minute (RPM) data. A large 3/revolution effect, due to tower shadow and wind shear, required the development of an enhanced… 
Condition Monitoring of Wind Turbines: A Review
This paper presents condition monitoring in wind turbines, and related technologies currently applied in practice and under development for aerospace applications, are reviewed. Condition monitoring
Performance and condition monitoring of tidal stream turbines
Research within the Cardiff Marine Energy Research Group (CMERG) has considered the integrated mathematical modelling of Tidal Stream Turbines (TST). The modelling studies are briefly reviewed.
Choosing the Best Vibration Sensor for Wind Turbine Condition Monitoring
Conservative estimates suggest that there are at least one-quarter of a million wind turbines currently installed worldwide. In the next four years, the global wind turbine market is expected to add
An Approach to Supporting Maintenance of Offshore Wind Turbine Blades
Offshore wind turbine blades suffer from various faults such as blade angle asymmetry, icing, and bends. Replacement of rotor blades normally involves heavy transportation (e.g., vessel and crane),
Proactive maintenance of offshore wind turbine blades using knowledge-based force analysis
The approach solves the semantic ambiguity of offshore wind information and provides the possibility to monitor the performance of wind turbine blades in real-time, leading to advanced alarms when needed, and can be adapted and applied for other wind turbine components.
Wind Turbine Monitoring and Fault Diagnosis by Can Protocol
The system with ARM and CAN protocol is declared to avoid the problems which occur in the wind turbine and reduce the possibility of fault occurrence and increase the monitoring of wind turbine.
Signal processing techniques to improve an Acoustic Emissions sensor
This paper hypothesizes that the AE signature is the result of some forcing function (e.g. periodic motion in the case of rotating machinery) and by using analog signal processing to demodulating theAE signature, one can reconstruct the information carried by the AE Signature and provide improved diagnostics.
Offshore Wind Data Integration
Using renewable energy to meet the future electricity consumption and to reduce environmental impact is a significant target of many countries around the world. Wind power is one of the most

Explaining complex ideas in an easy to understand way, Vibration-based Condition Monitoring provides a comprehensive survey of the application of vibration analysis to the condition monitoring of
Condition monitoring architecture: To reduce total cost of ownership
The lack of widespread adoption of condition monitoring systems (CMS) in wind turbines is due, in part, to the high total cost of ownership. After the initial purchase, there is installation,
