This session will describe current and explore application of new methods and sensors for the condition monitoring of wind turbines. Laboratory and field-based technologies will be explored and their operational effectiveness and expected added value quantified.

Learning objectives

  • Analyse new methods for monitoring turbine health and performance
  • Quantify the operational effectiveness of condition-based monitoring
  • Explore new sensors for turbine health monitoring
  • Quantify the value of prognostics
