Abstract

A sound maintenance strategy is significant for wind energy development, because it can strengthen the competitiveness of wind power. The design and development of maintenance strategies for wind energy is a complicated topic which involves failure modes, degeneration process, weather conditions, spare parts management, accessibility for repair, availability of maintenance resources and so on. If the maintenance decisions are irrational or maintenance actions cannot be planned reasonably, a large amount of unnecessary cost and production losses will be induced. In recent years, many researchers have concentrated on improving maintenance for wind energy assets. This paper makes a comprehensive review of the state of the art in maintenance strategy optimization for wind energy, and addresses main subjects existing in maintenance optimization, including maintenance policies, scope of optimization model, optimization objectives, influence factors and solution techniques. Concluding comments and research directions of potential interest are summarized at the end of the paper. The future maintenance strategies should comprehensively consider the changeable scenario and mutual dependencies to satisfy multiple objectives simultaneously in the wind farm level. The proposed maintenance strategy may be applied and tested in a real wind system to validate its effectiveness and efficiency.
