Monitoring wind park production

monotiraggio dati eolico

Monitoring the production of a wind park and planning the necessary maintenance are essential activities.
Both to keep the system at maximum efficiency and to minimize unnecessary expenses.

Artesian gives you straightforward access to the data history to perform an analysis and produce a plan in the most compatible way possible.

Let’s see step by step how to proceed.

The goal

Monitor the wind park production and plan the necessary maintenance to suit site operations.

The reference data is fictitious, created exclusively for this case. With Artesian, it is possible to write any data attribute to a Time Series, making it suitable for saving your data production.

Let’s see step by step how to proceed.

Let's save the plant data in Artesian

There are two ways to add new data in Artesian:

Independently thanks to the support of the SDKs in the main programming languages (C#, Matlab, Python).

By asking for assistance directly from Ark, who will support you with your needs.


Let's select the market data.

First, log into my Artesian account and select the market data I need through the available tools:

  1. Search by classification, choosing the provider used to save the data of my system, In this case, I am using the fictitious name SCADA.
  2. Textual search, using part of the name of the market data that is of interest.
  3. Proceed to select the market data identifier for the activity.

Repeat this operation for each market data, complete all the necessary selections and verify, as shown in the image, that there are no mistakes.

Let's proceed with the analysis

The next step concerns the extraction of market data for analysing.

Extraction can occur through any BI (Business Intelligence) tool due to the exposed APIs.

For simplicity, a default Excel report downloaded from the portal will be used in this case.

The configured extraction is as shown in the image below, with the following parameters:

  1. The data range is set, defining one year in the past from “Today” through the  “RollingYear” function. It allows an updated view of the data.
  2. The granularity of the extraction will be daily.
  3. Download the Excel file by pressing the “Download Excel” button.

With the downloaded file, it is sufficient to:

  • Update the Excel data (through authentication).
  • Analyze the data as I like best for this maintenance planning activity


Obtaining a report similar to the one below:

The automation

At this point, it has a regularly updated view of the system data with an Update button to obtain the latest information when required.

It is sufficient to employ just once and then have it entirely reproducible and automated in our workflow.

Not only does it save you time, but it allows you to minimize human errors caused by repeated operations on substantial amounts of data or different Excel files.

An undeniable advantage that allows us to focus on data analysis instead of its management and optimization.
