  • Oil filtration could reduce transformer faults, cut O&M costs

    Emerging oil filtration techniques could minimize pad-mount transformer faults and reduce one of the biggest sources of wind farm balance-of-plant (BoP) maintenance, Judah Moseson, vice president of operations at service provider Cooke Power Services, told Wind Energy Update.

  • New data analysis models aim to raise turbine reliability to 99.5%
