The aim of the present paper is to provide a state-of-the-art outline of structural health monitoring (SHM) techniques, utilizing temperature, noise and vibration, for wind turbine blades, and subsequently perform a typology on the basis of the typical four damage identification levels in SHM. Before presenting the state-of-the-art outline, descriptions of structural damages typically occurring in wind turbine blades are provided along with a brief description of the four damage identification levels.
