Abstract
    This contribution summarizes over two years of applied automated operational modal analysis on an operational offshore wind turbine. It discusses the applied automated Operational Modal Analysis (OMA) algorithm and the challenges of applying OMA to operational offshore wind turbines, ranging from the strong presence of rotor-harmonics to the sensitivity of modal parameters to environmental and operational conditions. The paper shows the most interesting results of over two years of monitoring, including an industry-first in-depth analysis of the behavior of the damping over the entire operational window. Moreover, a short discussion on the potential for OMA as a monitoring tool for offshore wind turbines is given.
