Performance data an essential part of the wind O&M picture

The capabilities of wind turbine performance monitoring (PM) technology have increased exponentially over the last several years, and now provides operators with an increasingly complex datasets into how well their turbines have performed.

With reports that consist of real-time analysis, usually software-based and coupled with wind turbine SCADA data systems, this technology allows asset managers to determine the performance of individual turbines. However, datastreams are often so complex that it is difficult for operators to successfully determine fleet improvements.


Fluitec Wind, in association with Sandia National Laboratories, investigated the utilization of big data analytic techniques to interpret data streams from wind turbines. They found that "big data" analysis methods can effectively predict component failure within +/- 30 days, which increases with accuracy as the database increases in size. Such techniques have begun to be widely used by operators to predict component failure, predict performance and drive changes that can improve yield fleet-wide.

Discussions into performance data and fleet optimisation forms an essential theme of the 5th Wind O&M Summit USA (9-10 April, Dallas), the biggest commercial networking forum designed specifically for owner/operators of wind assets. Featuring key insight from E.ON Climate and Renewables, EDP Renewables, Infigen Energy, AES Wind Generation, Firstwind, Akuo Energy and more, the O&M Summit has become the key commercial meeting point for the US O&M community

Lithium Ion Battery based Power Systems for Mobile Energy

Lithium Ion Battery based Power Systems for Mobile Energy


Get an efficient power supply system based on lithium technology and receive 12V/24V and 230V/50Hz simultaneously.

The Clayton Power lithium battery system can be charged from the mains via a G3 Combi - inverter/charger, an alternator while driving or from other power sources.

Our lithium ion batteries can be connected in parallel to achieve scalable power capacity and output. Connect more inverters or inverter/chargers to get a greater 230V output and even faster charging times.

Combined Inverter/Chargers
The G3 Combi - Inverter/Charger series, is a combined 230V power supply and intelligent multi charger in one compact unit.

Lithium Ion Batteries
Built-in Battery Management System. 12V and 24V - 100Ah. Scalable up to 2000Ah.

+ Powerful + Low weight + Long lifetime + Fast charging
