Evaluation of Wind Turbine Operation Status Based on ACO + FAHP

Ruizhe Zhang, Xueyao Wang


Aiming at the shortcomings of the fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (FAHP) in the comprehensive evaluation of wind power
projects, such as the diffi culty of satisfying and modifying the consistency of the judgment matrix and the high computational complexity, a
fuzzy analytic hierarchy process based on ant colony optimization (ACO+FAHP) is proposed. Firstly, the proposed fuzzy analytic hierarchy
process based on ant colony optimization algorithm overcomes the disadvantages that the weight and consistency cannot be improved once
the judgment matrix is given. The comparison chart of the consistency ratio calculated according to this method shows that the consistency
ratio B, C1-C5 all have diff erent degrees of reduction. Then, in view of the fact that various qualitative indicators cannot be accurately
calculated, the wind turbine operating status evaluation model is established by using the fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method. In this
paper, the evaluation score of a certain wind farm is 0.731, which means that the operators need to carry out high-level maintenance at this
