Abstract

Wind energy is one of the fastest growing sources of power production in the world today, and there is a constant need to reduce the costs of operating and maintaining them. Condition monitoring (CM) is used for the early detection of faults/failures of wind turbines. CM leads to minimizing the downtime and maximizing productivity. This chapter provides a review of the state of the art in CM for wind turbines, describing the different maintenance strategies and the main CM techniques.
