Research Institution
In order to fully capitalize on the delivery of wind energy to the U.S. power grid, unexpected wind turbine down-time due to equipment failure must be minimized. Deployed turbines typically have numerous sensors collecting information from subsystems such as the blades, gearbox, lubrication oil and the shaft. The state of the art in Condition Monitoring (CM) is currently confined to analysis of individual subsystems, with specialized analyses designed for each. Based on MAC
