Wind farm operator Avangrid Renewables collects a wide variety of data from many different sources. However, in the past it faced challenges when it came to gaining useful insight from these data.
Particularly problematic was the difficulty in determining and documenting lost generation across its wind turbine fleet time due to voluntary generation curtailment to meet contractual obligations. Inability to do so can lead to lost revenues.
By exporting the data from Seeq and deploying to Excel, Avangrid Renewables was able to add price information and determine the cost to the company.
