Monitoring wind turbine performance is described herein. One or more device embodiments include a memory and a processor. The processor is configured to execute executable instructions stored in the memory to determine a number of power outputs of a wind turbine at a number of wind speeds, determine a number of power residuals of the wind turbine at the number of wind speeds based on the determined power outputs and an expected power output curve associated with the wind turbine, adjust the power residuals based on a number of characteristics associated with a location of the wind turbine, analyze performance of the wind turbine based on the adjusted power residuals, and generate and display a number of health indicators associated with the wind turbine.
