Abstract: 

Currently there is significant focus on developing technologies for detecting and deterring wildlife around wind power plants. For these technologies to become long term commercial successes, they have to be effectively integrated into wind power plants and the functionality must align with the workflows in the plant’s local and remote control rooms. If the integration of detection and deterrent systems is difficult and thus costly, this may delay the deployment on a large scale, prolong the risk to the species that need protection, and in the end result in increased leveled cost of energy as well as increased cost of service to the energy consumer.

 

By sharing technical details and considerations among stakeholders, the hope that the process of integrating all these technologies into effectively operating wind power plants can be streamlined, and also that the end user will have a better experience using the new technologies as an integrated part of the plant control strategy.
