Duke Energy – Case Study

Duke Energy intergrated DigitalClone Live with their health monitoring systems to gain better insight into the current state and future life of their fielded assets. Duke Energy expects to see a 400% increase in their O&M costs in the near future. They invested in DigitalClone Live to reduce the risk of the anticipated increasing costs that are associated with aging wind fleets.

Main Bearing RCA

Main Bearing failures can cost $500,000+ in replacements, labor and crane costs. Sentient Science has developed a Main Bearing wear model to predict when cracks and wear will initiate so that the operator can take life extension actions to mitigate damage and extend the life of the main bearing and the gearbox.
