Our customers determine our success, and PowerUp—a comprehensive digital analytics suite of hardware and software solutions for your wind farms and turbines--enables us to align directly to customer outcomes, delivering reliable performance gains through wind turbine and farm analytics over the lifetime of your fleet.
The combination of a results-based, customized analytics platform and aerodynamic efficiency improvements and controls for variable speed efficiency, GE’s PowerUp wind energy optimization services can increase the annual energy production (AEP) of your wind farm by up to 8%.
When the PowerUp platform is activated for your fleet, GE’s wind turbine analytics software performs a complete historical analysis of each asset’s configuration, performance, and operational history along with the environmental conditions of the site. After establishing a baseline for each turbine, GE’s wind energy performance software will determine the potential increase in annual energy production using lifecycle data analytics on a model of your asset and site. With your turbines connected to the industrial Internet, you can achieve real-time optimizations of wind farm production levels based on turbine-specific environmental, operational, and economic conditions.
The PowerUp wind analytics platform is a lifecycle asset performance offering available for new or existing Flexible Service Agreements that continues to increase a wind farm’s AEP as new GE technologies are introduced. PowerUp is a flexible, analytics-focused outcome-based, commercial offering that allows wind farm operators to pay only for validated performance improvements.
Other digital analytics wind power tools include Digital Plan of the Day, Wind Asset Performance Management, Fleet-X, eSCADA and Cybersecurity. Learn more by looking at our digital solutions for wind assets.
WIND TURBINES MONITORED
PowerUp is a wind analytics platform with a suite of performance dials and levers to optimize a wind turbine’s operation and help enhance its energy production, resulting in a customized solution that helps increase annual energy production.
The Cypress onshore platform, which includes 4 MW and 5 MW wind turbines, is setting new standards for onshore wind energy production and costs.
With shared drivetrain and electrical system architecture across all machines, GE's 3 MW onshore wind platform is adaptable to a full spectrum of wind regimes.
Featuring significant improvement in AEP, GE’s 2 MW Platform of onshore wind turbines has more than 5.5 GW installed and operating today.
