The demand for wind energy grows at exponential rates. At the same time improving reliability, reduced operation and maintenance costs are the key priorities in wind tur-bine maintenance strategies . This paper provides information about a novel online oil condition monitoring system to give a solution to the mentioned priorities. The presented...

... general, the field of maintenance can be divided into three sectors: preventive (time-based), intelligent (condition-based) and reactive maintenance (run to failure), which show different dependencies between costs and number of failures. Figure 1 shows the costs associated with the different strategies . From this graph, the optimal point in terms of costs and number of failures can be identified within the center of the intelligent maintenance sector; intelligent maintenance can be realized with an online condition monitoring solution. ...
