Pramod Bangalore works as a PhD student in the department of Electric Power Engineering. His research focuses on Maintenance Management of wind turbines. The main aim of the project is to reduce the cost of maintenance in wind turbines using innovative strategies and failure prognosis algorithms. The focus will be on using SCADA alarms as indicators for impending failure. The results might be useful for wind power plant operators and owners. Reduction in maintenance cost will result in reduction of Life Cycle Cost of the wind power plants thereby making them more lucrative to the investors.
