The Wind farm Performance Analysis software
Diagnoses and evaluates the performance of wind farms
Meteodyn WPA monitors the performance of wind farms. The software automatically analyzes the SCADA data of wind turbines, then presents the data on graphs or on combined indicators, making it simpler for the data to be analyzed in depth.
The software automatically detects and classifies the operating status of wind turbines into different categories without the use of the turbine status indicators. This function makes it possible to evaluate the real power curve of the wind turbines on the actual site and compare it with the manufacturer's one. The power curves obtained can then be analyzed over time using the data crossing tool. This makes it possible to detect a loss of energy production, analyze failures of wind turbines and diagnose the underperformance.
Meteodyn WPA will facilitate the evaluation of downtime and energy loss caused by breakdowns, electrical grid controls or maintenance operations.
Exploit and analyze
The computation of statistical parameters from wind turbines and wind farms
- Real, daily average and production loss
- Capacity factor
- Average wind speed
- Availability based on the running time or on the production
The detection of the operating status of a wind turbine
- Normal, curtailment, stop, underproduction, overproduction and measurement error.
The fault analysis function
- Measurement error and turbine failure for each turbine
- Reliability indicators: MTTR, MTTF, MTBF
Refine and compare
Power curve measurement and comparison with the manufacturer's power curve (WTG format import).
Comparison of actual and potential production of wind turbines and wind farms for a monthly view and cumulative view of the entire farm or for each wind turbine.
Zoom inside the time series.
Compliance with standards
- Correct the SCADA power curve using meteorological data according to the IEC 61400-12-1 standard.
An independent and powerful tool to manage large amounts of data
Meteodyn WPA is not restricted to a particular manufacturer of wind turbines. It can cope with all brands and all wind turbines, given that it requires a small number of measured variables. The software does not use the wind turbine status indicators, or its error codes generated by manufacturers. It only requires the raw SCADA data from the wind turbines in a time series with at least wind speed, direction, and production measurements.
An accurate analysis through data crossing
The software analyses the relation between any three parameters of a wind turbine.
It is also possible to select time laps for a more precise analysis.
The software works offline. To analyze the data, the software does not require a constant connection to the SCADA database. The imported SCADA data remains available, as it is stored in your database.
An intuitive software interface
Monitor the state of operation of your wind farms through the world map visualization. All your projects come together on a single map, simplifying the control of your wind farms.
Import with ease
Import with ease meteorological data, regardless of its source: meteorological mast, mesoscale, meteorological station, etc.
