“Maintenance Management of Wind Turbines” considers the main concepts, the state-of-the-art, as well as advances and case studies on this topic. Maintenance is a critical variable in industry in order to reach competitiveness, being the most important, together with operations, in the wind energy industry. Therefore, the correct management of corrective, predictive and preventive politics in any wind turbine is required. This issue will consider original research works that show content complementary to other sub-disciplines, such as economics, finance, marketing, decision and risk analysis, engineering, etc., in the maintenance management of wind turbines.
The issue will also show real case studies. They will consider topics, such as failures detection and diagnosis, fault trees and subdisciplines (e.g., FMECA, FMEA, etc.). It is essential to link these topics with financial, schedule, resources, downtimes, etc., in order to increase productivity, profitability, maintainability, reliability, safety, availability, and reduce costs, downtimes, etc., in a wind turbine.
Advances in mathematics, models, computational techniques, dynamic analysis, etc., are employed in maintenance management.
It will also consider computational techniques, dynamic analysis, probabilistic methods, and mathematical optimization techniques that are expertly blended to support the analysis of multi-criteria decision-making problems with defined constraints and requirements.
