What type of data does WindGEMINI work with?
AnswerMost of WindGEMINI’s algorithms ingest normal 10-minute SCADA data. There is no need for additional sensors or condition monitoring systems. One algorithm (the Structural Integrity Monitor) uses higher frequency data (ideally 1 second). On many turbine models this is already available and can be logged through the OPC or IEC interface.
What signals do WindGEMINI's algorithms use?
AnswerWindGEMINI’s algorithms rely on a relatively small number of signals, all of which are available in most SCADA datasets. A full list of data requirements can be provided on request.
How does WindGEMINI ingest data from the wind turbines?
AnswerWindGEMINI can read data in a number of ways. It can process email attachments (which can be delivered to WindGEMINI automatically, using for example the reporting functionality of a secondary SCADA system), it can read from FTP and it can access SQL servers. When needed, our team can quickly develop functionality to read in from other types of databases.
