Advance warnings 9 months before potential failures and £150k operational savings per turbine.
- Understand the Gearbox workings and potential failure modes
- Collect data from the SCADA and CMS systems
- Perform Vibration analysis
- Develop a Neural Network to model “Normal” behaviour
- Provide alerts of abnormal behaviour
