The main objective of the proposed research study is to discriminate different blade fault conditions which affect the wind turbine blades under operating condition through machine learning approach. A three bladed wind turbine was chosen and the faults like blade bend, blade cracks, blade erosion, hub-blade loose connection and pitch angle twist were considered in the study. This problem is formulated as a machine learning problem which consists of three phases, namely feature extraction, feature selection and feature classification. Histogram features were extracted from vibration signals and feature selection was carried out using J48 decision tree algorithm. Feature classification was performed using lazy classifiers like nearest neighbour, k-nearest neighbours, locally weighted learning and K-star classifier. The results of these classifiers were compared with respect to their correctly classified instances (accuracy percentage) and found that, locally weighted learning yielded a maximum accuracy of 93.83% with a computational time of 0.07 s. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd
