SCADA MINER: AUTOMATED WIND TURBINE SCADA DATA ANALYSIS

SCADA Miner is an automated data retrieval and analysis software service for wind farms.  It identifies specific conditions requiring investigation amongst the vast amounts of normal operational data.

Asset performance is continuously examined, allowing engineering resources to remain focused on solving engineering problems.

Tests are configured to periodically execute. When a test is due, the SCADA Miner server connects to the wind farm SCADA historian and requests the required data. The data is analysed and an Exception Report is produced if the results of the analysis exceed alerting thresholds. The Exception Report is emailed, along with the raw data if applicable.  The Exception report and data are also uploaded onto an online tracking and collaboration system.

Targeted Alerts

The person responsible for investigation of the identified issue will receive the Exception Report. A metering report goes to the compliance department, a mechanical issue generates an alert for the site wind turbine technicians etc.

Informative Reports

Exception Reports contain enough information for the user to decide the next course of action. The report explains why it has been created and contains plots enabling quick visual recognition of a problem.  Raw data is attached to the email to save the recipient having to retrieve it.

No Customer Hardware

The SCADA Miner server exists on the web. Simply provide access to the wind farm historian. No hardware or software to purchase and no server to maintain.

Powerful Data Analysis

Move on from simple hardwired I/O alarm reporting and threshold-based analogue alarming. SCADA Miner performs powerful data analysis to identify unseen problems.

SCADA Miner is not a SCADA system – it is a software service which complements your existing wind farm SCADA systems through data mining
