Condition monitoring (CM) and fault detection of the drive-train and power electronics are two very important tasks which are necessary in order to maintain the reliability of industrial wind turbines. Unexpected failures, expensive repair and downtime costs can be avoided or limited through effective remote CM technology. The consortium of the FP7 OPTIMUS project is involved in the development and demonstration of an integrated CM system based on a modular design, which enables reliable diagnosis and prognosis of the power electronic faults and drive-trains. CM systems have been installed onACCIONAAW-1500 wind turbines to continuously evaluate the condition of power electronics and drive-trains. Some of the key results and analysis methodologies employed are presented in this paper for the power converters.
