THE WORLD’S FIRST DIGITAL WIND FARM

Offered as a part of GE's expanded services agreements, the Digital Wind Farm is a comprehensive hardware and software solution comprised of our customizable 2MW and 3MW wind turbine products, and a suite of applications, built on the Predix* software platform, that brings new value to your wind farm. This added wind project value begins with our newest hardware, including an assortment of rotor diameters, tower heights and turbine ratings. Modular turbine technology enables us to vary turbine parameters to meet pad-specific conditions and economics.

The software component of the Digital Wind Farm is build on the Predix platform, which provides a digital infrastructure for your wind farm, enabling you to collect, visualize and analyze unit and site level data. Through the constant collection of this data-- weather, component information, service reports and performance of similar models throughout the GE fleet-- a predictive model is built and data is turned into actional insights. These models serve as the basis of our new suite of applications, allowing wind farm operators to optimize maintenance strategy, improve reliability and availability and increase annual energy production.

FORECASTING THE FUTURE

The Energy Forecasting application is an integrated software and analytics solution that forecasts farm power outputs in both real time and up to seven days ahead. The app allows wind farm operators to better capture margin price spread and reduce forecast-to-actual deviation penalties, while also allowing for optimized O&M planning.
