Abstract

With the extensive and worldwide increase of the market share of wind energy, the optimal operation of wind farms gains an ever growing significance. The planning and scheduling of maintenance operations is both decisive for turbine availability and a key component of the operational costs. This paper introduces a formal model of wind farm maintenance, and proposes a mixed-integer programming formulation for the problem of optimizing detailed maintenance schedules. Initial results are presented and directions for future research are pointed out.
