How to increase the AEP from wind turbines?

Jul. 28, 2020 ---

AEP from wind turbines increasingly an important parameter as availability is being replaced by performance metrics in the wind industry.

In today's world, wind farms have achieved technical availability of 99% which implies that wind turbines need less than 100 h per year of downtime.

If wind turbines are available to produce electricity for 361 days out of the year, why should we care about performance?

It is now widely accepted in the wind industry that one should acknowledge the fact that wind turbines are often operating in very unfavorable weather and site conditions with their operation being difficult to regulate, since it is strongly dependent on uncontrolled parameters such as wind speed, ambient conditions, grid status and more.

This is where Sereema comes in. With our patented technology, we are able to provide independent data to monitor those previously uncontrollable parameters so that wind turbines aren't just available, they are able to deliver results. Since 2015, we have empowered wind asset managers in 12 countries to foresee actions that will keep the health of their turbines in check and extend their reliability.
