Online Monitoring—Engineering Change Package Content for a Distributed Antenna System and Wireless Vibration Sensors
Online monitoring of nuclear plant components can improve reliability and reduce maintenance costs, and common designs for wireless infrastructure and associated sensors can make online monitoring more economical. This report provides design guidance for the installation of (1) a distributed antenna system for establishing wireless connectivity in a plant and (2) wireless vibration sensors on […]
This is one or four new “Quick Guides” that EPRI has developed to help nuclear plant owners quickly assess what monitoring instruments and methods could be applied to a particular piece of equipment to address potential degradation mechanisms. It also helps prioritize selection.
Developing a Technical Basis for Using On-Line Equipment Condition Monitoring to Reduce Time-Based Preventive and Predictive Maintenance: Update to 3002010579
This research identifies plant equipment to monitor based on historical preventive maintenance costs and describes methods for applying continuous on-line monitoring to reduce or eliminate maintenance tasks.
Flexible operation of power plants has increased the need for efficient plant maintenance. This report provides an overview to data analytics as applied to plant maintenance and technology, identifying opportunities for improvement as plant operators transition from scheduled maintenance to condition-based maintenance.
