European Regional Development Fund
The European Regional Development Fund aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union by correcting imbalances between its regions. Project CoBaMaS (Condition Based Maintenance System to enable predictive maintenance of frequency converters in wind applications) is funded under the NRW-climate protection competition „ErneuerbareEnergien.NRW“ by the state North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) and aid of the European Regional Development Fund (EFRE) 2014-2020 “investments in growth and employment” from 03-23-2018 until 03-22-2021.
The objective within the funding is to develop a solution to reduce the power generation costs of a wind turbine and to increase the availability on basis of a self-learning predictive system to allow early identification of potential malfunction of components.
