Previous research has shown that there is a clear relationship between wind speed and wind turbine reliability (Hahn, 1997; Tavner et al., 2013; Wilkinson et al., 2012). However, research to date has not made any efforts to make a detailed model of this relationship at a component level. This paper aims to model this relationship and then investigate the impact of seasonal wind speed on reliability. Assessments will be made on the impact of the wind speed offshore on wind turbine reliability and the potential of using this model to plan maintenance schedules and spares will be discussed.
