Wind Power Performance Data Exchange - WiPPeX
In order to optimize the operation of the wind power plants, the database "Wind Power Performance Data Exchange - WiPPeX" was established by VGB on the initiative of the SF "Wind". The structure of the database allows the performance comparison of different individual wind turbine platforms. The needed SCADA data are continuously supplied as 10-min time slices on a monthly basis. Companies who provide operational wind power plant data are allowed to use the database to evaluate the operational data by their own. In minimum, three different companies have to participate at the individual wind turbine platform to guarantee the anonymization process, which is assured by VGB. The member companies of the SF “Wind” Stadtwerke München, EnBW and Vattenfall have provided the data for the Vestas V90-2MW wind turbine platform retroactively from 1 January 2019.
The aim is to continuously expand the database and to include further wind turbine platforms. Essential anonymized “Error Codes” grouped for the main components will be included within the individual databases in a further step.
