Extending performance of your wind farm

Nov. 17 2023

The wind farm keeps churning the mother nature of wind power to deliver useful electricity. From the moment of commissioning until its typical design, designated 20 or 25 years, wind turbines undergo a fatigue-driven structural change over their lifecycle. This transformation is influenced by various factors, including extreme wind conditions, rapid stops, bending movements, electrical system impacts, and safety concerns.

Learn how this process of lifecycle change is measured to determine the remaining useful life of wind turbines. Wind farm operators are obligated to regulatory bodies and electricity operators to ensure the safe, efficient, and reliable dispatch of power, maintaining power security until the wind farm reaches the phase of full decommissioning.

Key Topics to be covered:

  • The Lifecycle of Wind Turbines
  • Technical Perspectives
  • Financial and Social Perspectives
