In view of the limitations of the condition monitoring (CM) techniques nowadays available for wind turbines (WTs), a fully intelligent condition monitoring technique has been developed in this paper using Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD). The EMD method is
characterized by its powerful apability in processing non-stationary and nonlinear signals and by being an efficient sifting algorithm. The effectiveness and the merits of the proposed technique in wind turbine condition monitoring have been experimentally validated on a Wind
Turbine Condition Monitoring Test Rig.
