How to model O&M costs and evaluate the cost impact of serial failures

O&M costs for wind farms are difficult to predict and can vary significantly between wind farms and turbine technologies. O&M cost is by far the least predictable factor in a wind farm’s operating expenditure (OPEX) and investors are demanding more accurate predictions.
