NarrativeWave, an Internet of Things software company, has announced the release of Analytic Starter Kits. These kits answer the needs of operators who are looking for cost-effective digital solutions that can impact their business operations from day one.
“The Analytic Starter Kit is a breakthrough for wind operators,” said Johnny Dobbins, Director of Client Engineering for NarrativeWave. “For years operators have relied on manually checking towers, and it can be hours or days before they discover a problem.
NarrativeWave’s Tower Performance Analytic identifies every tower in the fleet that is underperforming and analyzes the most probable causes. This saves significant diagnosis time, results in higher energy output, and lets operators fix the problem themselves quickly or inform the OEM to address the problem.
‘Our Tower Performance Analytic Kit pinpoints underperforming turbines, investigates why they are underperforming, and generates automated reports instructing operators what to do next,” said Dobbins. “Until now, there has been no way to automate the process of both detecting and determining the root causes of underperforming turbines.”
The value provided by the Tower Performance Analytic includes:
- Increasing the energy output by identifying and resolving underperformance issues faster with better accuracy.
- Improving the efficiency of operators by automating the identification of underperforming towers.
- Optimizing OEM service contracts by proactively informing OEMs the need to take action on underperforming turbines.
The benefits are immediate for operators as NarrativeWave’s analytic packages can be turned on quickly to help customers reap the benefits of newly identified operational savings.
The Analytic Starter Kits are a seamless part of NarrativeWave’s software solutions. As a result, engineers can configure, change, and build any other type of analytics inside NarrativeWave for maximizing productivity and assessing performance. This is the beginning of a set of Analytic Starter Kits that will benefit renewable customers. NarrativeWave plans to be releasing additional Analytic Starter Kits on a monthly basis.
