About This Topic

Wind turbine is a complex mechatronic equipment, which requires an efficient monitoring and maintenance system to ensure its safety, reliability and economy in service. Due to the complex service conditions, harsh environment and difficult maintenance of wind turbines, the traditional fault diagnosis andhealth status assessment theory cannot meet the needs of wind power industry for near-zero fault operation of wind turbines. Wind turbine fault diagnosis and health status assessment strategy based on machine learning, making full use of the wind turbine SCADA data information, which can achieve accurate fault detection and low-cost and efficient preventive maintenance. The most representative machine learning algorithm is the deep learning, which is also a hot research direction in the field of machine condition monitoring and fault diagnosis.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect the recent results on adopting deep learning theory or some other advanced models for wind turbine fault diagnosis, health status assessment, and remaining life prediction.

Potential topics to be covered:

Machine learning;
Deep learning;
Transfer learning;
Data acquisition;
Condition monitoring;
Signal processing;
Feature extraction;
Fault diagnosis;
Pattern recognition;
Health status assessment;
Remaining life prediction.
