Temperature sensor reading inconsistent with peers

Understanding temperature sensor reading inconsistent with peers

What is the purpose of the turbine issue check?

  • For a given turbine, the ambient temperature sensor is providing measurements that are different from others of the same turbine model at a given site.
  • Many turbines have built-in features to boost power below a certain temperature and, if not operating as expected, the increase in AEP will not be realized.

What does this look like / How do you identify this issue?

  • Comparing the temperature sensor output - in the example below 4 temperature sensors are generating anomalous readings compared to their peers
