  • Optimisation of wind turbine inspection intervals. 

    Andrawus, Jesse A.; Watson, John; Kishk, Mohammed; Gordon, Heather (Multi-Science Publishing. http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/030952408786411921, 2008-10)
    ANDRAWUS, J. A., WATSON, J., KISHK, M. and GORDON, H., 2008. Optimisation of wind turbine inspection intervals. Wind Engineering, 32 (5), pp. 477-490.
    The choice of correct inspection intervals poses a serious challenge to industries that utilise physical assets. Too short an interval increases operational cost and waste production time while too long an interval increases ...
  • The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. 

    Andrawus, Jesse A.; Watson, John; Kishk, Mohammed; Adam, Allan (Multi-Science Publishing Co. Ltd. http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/030952406779994141, 2006-12)
    ANDRAWUS, J. A. et al., 2006. The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. Wind Engineering, 30 (6), pp. 471-486
    Common maintenance strategies applied to wind turbines include ‘Time-Based’ which involves carrying out maintenance tasks at predetermined regular-intervals and ‘Failure- Based’ which entails using a wind turbine until ...
  • Significance of effective lubrication in mitigating system failures – a wind turbine gearbox case study. 

    Sinha, Yashwant; Steel, John A.; Andrawus, Jesse A.; Gibson, Karen (Multi-Science / Sage http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/0309-524x.38.4.441, 2015)
    SINHA, Y. and STEEL, J., 2015. Significance of effective lubrication in mitigating system failures – a wind turbine gearbox case study. Wind Engineering, Vol 38 (4), pp. 441-450.
    The effectiveness of lubrication in machines mainly depends on the physical and chemical properties of lubricating oil, like quantity, level of suspended particles, effect of external load/shear forces, temperature amongst ...
  • A SMART software package for maintenance optimisation of offshore wind turbines. 

    Sinha, Yashwant; Steel, John A.; Andrawus, Jesse A.; Gibson, Karen (Multi-Science / Sage http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/0309-524X.37.6.569, 2013)
    SINHA, Y., STEEL, J., ANDRAWUS, J. and GIBSON, K., 2013. A SMART software package for maintenance optimisation of offshore wind turbines. Wind Engineering, Vol 37 (6), pp. 569-577.
    Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) maintenance costs in between 20 - 35% of the lifetime power generation cost. Many techniques and tools that are being developed to curtail this cost are challenged by the stochastic climatic ...
  • Wind Turbine Maintenance Optimisation: principles of quantitative maintenance optimisation 

    Andrawus, Jesse A.; Watson, John; Kishk, Mohammed (Multi-Science Publishing Co. Ltd. http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/030952407781494467, 2007-03)
    ANDRAWUS, J. A., WATSON, J. and KISHK, M., 2007. Wind turbine maintenance optimisation: principles of quantitative maintenance optimisation. Wind Engineering, 31 (2), pp. 101-110
    Maintenance optimisation is a crucial issue for industries that utilise physical assets due to its impact on costs, risks and performance. Current quantitative maintenance optimisation techniques include Modelling System ...
