Smarter Wind Turbines Try to Squeeze More Power on Each Rotation
Makers of giant wind turbines are hoping that artificial intelligence can bring back some of the industry’s mojo. While developers have spent $1.1 trillion on new wind farms over the past dozen years -- helping transform the global energy landscape with renewable power -- more money is going into new solar systems these days. Also, governments are phasing out subsidies, including programs in the U.S. that have offered $22 billion in tax breaks to turbine projects in the past 15 years.
Invenergy wind engineers build analytics in-house to gain speed edge
Invenergy is deploying analytics software by NarrativeWave which empowers wind operations engineers to build new models and can cut development times by up to 90%, company directors told New Energy Update.
How the renewable energy industry can leverage real-time analytics to improve asset performance and outcomes
While renewable energy companies have developed advanced applications to improve diagnosing anomalies on wind turbines, for example, most are still taking a “trip first, analyse later” approach, writes Benjamin Decio, CEO of analytics firm NarrativeWave.
