An integrated performance and condition based approach to maintenance decision making for wind turbine support structures.

Project: Research


The aim of this project is to develop and validate a condition-based maintenance model that uses historical failure data, engineering judgement, real-time health and performance data to identify the optimum maintenance and inspection actions and intervals for engineering systems, with an initial focus on support structures. As a result, the model should be able to:
-Assess the economic value of different sources of information, capturing correlations and dependencies between information sources.
-Minimise maintenance while maximising availability by identifying optimal repair, replacement and inspect decisions.
