Building an unprecedented ecosystem in the industrial 4.0 environment
Wind power serves as an important renewable energy. The industry has developed vigorously in recent years. However, due to the limitations of wind farm construction, wind turbine equipment is mainly installed in remote and sparsely populated areas such as the Gobi Desert, hilly regions and coastal areas. The locations make daily inspections difficult, impose heavy burdens on service staff, and lead to high maintenance costs. In addition, due to complex factors such as changeable climate and harsh operating environments, wind turbine units are frequently out of action. Specifically, wind turbine equipment comprises complex systems such as hydraulic, mechanical and electrical systems. When key components such as pitch, yaw and generator fail, this will cause significant economic losses and even serious casualties.
