Abstract : The use of offshore wind farms has been growing in recent years, as steadier and higher wind speeds can be generally found over water compared to land. Moreover, as human activities tend to complicate the construction of land wind farms, offshore locations, which can be found more easily near densely populated areas, can be seen as an attractive choice. However, the cost of an offshore wind farm is relatively high, and therefore their reliability is crucial if they ever need to be fully integrated into the energy arena. As wind turbines have become more complex, efficient, and expensive structures, they require more sophisticated monitoring systems, especially in offshore sites where the financial losses due to failure could be substantial. This paper presents the preliminary analysis of supervisor control and data acquisition SCADA extracts from the Lillgrund wind farm for the purposes of structural health monitoring. A machine learning approach is applied in order to produce individual power curves, and then predict measurements of the power produced of each wind turbine from the measurements of the other wind turbines in the farm. A comparison between neural network and Gaussian process regression is also made.
