This paper presents a novel prognostic method to estimate the remaining useful life (RUL) of generators using the SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) systems installed in wind turbines. A data-driven wind turbine anomaly classification method is developed. The anomalies are quantified into a health indicator to measure the component degradation over time. An Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) time series forecasting technique is then applied to predict the RUL of the wind turbine generator. The proposed method has been validated using industry field data showing accurate predictions of RUL with a 21 day lead time for maintenance of the turbine.
