Wind turbine blades are generally manufactured using fiber type material because of their cost effectiveness and light weight property however, blade get damaged due to wind gusts, bad weather conditions, unpredictable aerodynamic forces, lightning strikes and gravitational loads which causes crack on the surface of wind turbine blade. It is very much essential to identify the damage on blade before it crashes catastrophically which might possibly destroy the complete wind turbine. In this paper, a fifteen tree classification based machine learning algorithms were modelled for identifying and detecting the crack on wind turbine blades. The models are built based on computing the vibration response of the blade when it is excited using piezoelectric accelerometer. The statistical, histogram and ARMA methods for each algorithm were compared essentially to suggest a better model for the identification and localization of crack on wind turbine blade.
