Up until now, most wind turbines are not smart enough to autonomously locate the geographical north (or the 0°). Instead, they rely on a one-time-only configuration of the North position in the yaw system, which is usually done during commissioning. This parameter is key for the turbine to know its direction.
Misconfigurations can however occur during the lifetime of the turbine due to a communication loss, or a software update, which will delete the original configuration thus create a North offset.
Having important North offsets will directly impact the data quality of your SCADA system, your capability to precisely monitor the wind farm performance, and eventually can reduce the AEP, reduce the lifetime, or increase the noise emissions of your wind farm.
