The article presents universal autonomous system of computer vision to monitor the operation of wind turbines. The proposed system allows to estimate the rotational speed and the relative position deviation of the wind turbine. We present a universal method for determining the rotation of wind turbines of various shapes and structures. All obtained data are saved in the database. The presented method was tested at the Territory of Non-traditional Renewable Energy Sources of Ural Federal University Experimental wind turbines is produced by “Scientific and Production Association of automatics named after academician N.A. Semikhatov”. Results show the efficiency of the proposed system and the ability to determine main parameters such as the rotational speed, accuracy and quickness of orientation. The proposed solution is to assume that, in most cases a rotating and central parts of the wind turbine can be allocated different color. The color change of wind blade should not affect the system performance.
