A Knowledge Based Approach to Calculating Turbine Availability for Large Sets of Windfarm Data
A Knowledge Based Approach to Calculating Turbine Availability
Project Title: A Knowledge Based Approach to Calculating Turbine Availability for Large Sets of Windfarm Data
Researcher: Mr. Frank O’Connor
Funding Body: Irish Research Council & Servusnet Informatics
Project Type: Industrial PhD Studentship
Modern windfarms generate huge volumes of data. Organising and classifying faults is often only the first step in deriving useful information from SCADA data. This data can be mined and interrogated with the ultimate goal of answering questions around turbine availability. The project will build a better solution for capturing rules around Availability and to implement a Knowledge based approach capable of using these rules to generate new knowledge about Availability.
