Study on Offshore Wind Farm Maintenance Strategies Optimization
With the harsh maritime environment, the accessibility of the site leads to the high cost directly. The cost on Operation & Maintenance for offshore wind farm is about twice of equivalent onshore wind farms. Consequently the study on the maintenance strategies is necessary. The objective of this work is to optimize the offshore wind farm maintenance strategies by network planning method, to minimize the total cost, by considing the effect of several factors, such as weather, boat availability, the location of the wind farm and ect.
