The wind is the second energy source in Europe in terms of capacity installed (Wind in power, 2016 European Statistics). So the attention to developing an effective maintenance strategy is fast growing.
The i-EM team Dr. Alessandro Betti and Eng. Lorenzo Gigoni presented, as invited speakers, an innovative Model of Predictive Maintenance system for wind turbines at the one-day event in Milan. The active participation of i-EM contributed to the success of the MATLab Expo, as remarked by Mathworks, MATLab Expo organizers. In particular, the MATLAB® application developed by I-EM allows predictions of component anomalies in advance up to even more than 1 month.
That’s a great step in optimizing of the renewable plants management.
