Depending on the age and type of your turbine, using and interpreting the SCADA data from an operating wind farm can range from challenging to very difficult, even for a simple assessment.
Data is generally stored in dozens of separate files, or in a relational database that requires a great deal of post-processing to get the data into a useful format.
Meventus has years of experience preparing, processing and combining SCADA data with local mast measurements, reference data, and other relevant data sets for use in park performance analyses.
We can take any data set, extract the useful information and combine it with the necessary description to prepare it for investigation of any desired parameter, in whatever format is requested.
In addition to producing combined data in useful formats, we also provide Quality Assurance (QA). This is one of the most critical, and challenging steps in any analysis.
This includes fixing some of the following most common data quality issues:
- Ensuring all data is recorded in consistent time zones (especially for summer/winter time changes)
- Correcting for nacelle position drift for all turbines (see figure below)
Starting analysis with a quality baseline set is the most critical step in enabling full understanding of the performance of your project, and to ultimately find conclusive and actionable results.
There is no need to feel overwhelmed by your SCADA data! Let Meventus help you interpret and analyze your data to answer all the questions you have about your project.
