POWER is a project aimed at improving wind turbine reliability and optimizing the amount and quality of power generated.
The project has three main objectives, as follows:
- Optimizing maintenance costs via an advanced monitoring system that can generate indicators from multiple sources and allow real-time diagnosis of the
state of the machine as well as forecasting its components’ lifespans;
- Developing innovative sensors using optic fibers in order to refine various measurements and optimize both diagnosis and forecasting;
- Optimizing and predicting production by improving the electricity chain, studying the power generation and weather forecasting records, and creating fault-tolerant settings.
