Reliability focused research on optimizing Wind Energy systems design, operation and maintenance: Tools, proof of concepts, guidelines & methodologies for a new generation

Cel

The EU Council of Ministers held 8 & 9th march 2007 examined theses issues and agreed: “Renewable energy will cover at least 20 % of the EU’s energy demand by 2020”, amongst others. Wind power can make the most important contribution to these targets, if sufficient emphasis is established on technological R&D and market development. Because of the current European scenario and its forecasted evolution towards 2020, offshore wind energy is called to play a key role. Offshore maintenance costs in the current situation are still too high, requiring higher feed-in tariffs for the private investor´s business case to reach the minimum profitability. This project aims is to offset this paradigm, allowing offshore wind power to be deployed in the same way onshore has. RELIAWIND consortium, for the first time in the European Wind Energy Sector, and based on successful experiences from other sectors (e.g. aeronautics) will jointly & scientifically study the impact of reliability, changing the paradigm of how Wind Turbines are designed, operated and maintained. This will lead to a new generation of offshore (and onshore) Wind energy Systems that will hit the market in 2015. The objectives of this research project are: • To identify Critical Failures and Components (WP-1: Field Reliability Analysis) • To understand Failures and Their Mechanisms (WP-2: Design for Reliability) • To define the Logical Architecture of an advanced WTG Health Monitoring System (WP-3: Algorithms) • To demonstrate the Principles of the Project Findings (WP-4: Applications) • To train internal and external partners and other Wind Energy sector stakeholders (WP-5: Training) • To disseminate the achieved new knowledge through Conferences, Workshops, Web Site and Media (WP-6: Dissemination)
