Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The growth of the number and size of turbines installed worldwide has been large in recent years. The capital costs involved in the development and installation of wind farms have also increased. To ensure the maximum return on investment, operators are looking to maximize turbine availability and minimize Operation and Maintenance (O&M) costs. Condition Monitoring (CM) systems and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems allow Condition Based Maintenance plans (CbM) to be used which offer possible O&M savings over both Failure based Maintenance (FbM) and Preventive Maintenance (PM) strategies.
