Operational data of wind turbines recorded by the Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system originally intended only for operation and performance monitoring show promise also for assessing the health of the turbines. Using these data for monitoring mechanical components, in particular the drivetrain subassembly with gearbox and bearings, has recently been investigated with multiple techniques. In this paper the advantages and drawbacks of suggested approaches as well as general challenges and limitations are discussed focusing on automated and farm-wide condition monitoring.
