Cost effective and reliable plant operation is the key for success in any competitive industry.
With our knowledge and dedicated hardware, we help you tackle the sometimes elusive area of Predictive Maintenance and make sure you don’t fight windmills. We identify issues before they become problems and help you to fix things before they are broken.
As with almost all machines, wind turbines are subject to ageing and degradation in performance over their lifetime. Our specialized algorithms provide insights into the past and present of your assets and offer recommendations for the future. With a detailed SCADA Data Analysis, we can assess whether your assets perform within the expected bounds and where the reasons lie, if they do not. We assess reliability, availability, and downtime in the context of the available resource. In a consulting approach and in close cooperation with you, we work out how to increase reliability and availability through an optimized Asset Management Strategy.
We can perform a standard power curve analysis. Based on statistical methods we can identify underproduction and classify actual availability of the turbine. Combining our statistical expertise with our domain knowledge, we tackle this problem from angles you might not expect.
“No wind turbine is an island.” We analyze wind parks in their entirety to spot issues or potentials stemming from the interaction between the turbines in a park.
With our ClockworkX Advanced Processing Engine we aim to achieve what we call Holistic Predictive Maintenance. By combining not only CSM and SCADA systems, but also service and maintenance records, we can improve our prediction bounds further and offer you true insight into your assets.
We use probabilistic models to combine measured data series with expert knowledge and data about discrete events. Based on historic data, the models output predicted boundaries for operation and can detect anomalies in real time.
The full potential of this method can be utilized once all your non-sensor data is digitalized and available for the algorithms. STARDUST is our Semantic Life Cycle Database that can hold all your assets data and supports full integration with CAPE
