Webinar recording: How analytics support Generg in ensuring wind turbines reach their full potential

Event Description

The Generg Group have been building and operating renewable power plants (including wind, solar and hydroelectric) in Portugal for over three decades, and are now expanding across Europe. CGI is partnering with Generg to deliver increased production across their multi-technology portfolio, while also supporting new ways of working during the current COVID-19 crisis.

This presentation focuses on three strands of performance analysis of renewable assets provided by CGI’s Renewables Management System: Downtime Allocation, Power Curve Analysis, and Real-time detection of deviations from expected power.

Downtime Allocation looks at the correction of event allocation in the control centre to determine monthly asset availabilities, in order to examine the contractual responsibilities of manufacturers who are on a ‘guaranteed availability’ contract.

Power Curve Analysis examines wind turbine efficiency and reveals any deviations from the expected asset performance.  Reports demonstrating these deviations are used by Generg to support discussions with manufacturers who are on a ‘guaranteed efficiency’ contract.

Real-time, automatic detection of deviations from OEM expected power output, giving Generg the opportunity to take immediate action to minimise production losses.

What you will learn:

The role of data
analytics in improving the performance of renewable energy assets
How your utility
peers are empowering themselves to have
constructive conversations with asset manufacturers
How to detect
underperforming wind turbines on an operational wind farm
How a utility with
wind, solar and hydroelectric generating assets across several countries can
operate their portfolio from a single platform
How an end-to-end
service can streamline your operations and improve efficiency across the
How mobile solutions
allow you to monitor power plants remotely

All of these capabilities are good for business at all times, and take on a sharper focus during challenging times.
