Failures with gas turbine lube-oil systems have been a focus area for the power industry as a result of events resulting in lost generation and steep repair costs. This report assists owners of combustion turbine combined-cycle facilities in implementing a maintenance program to improve lube-oil system reliability and plant availability.
Drawing on a review of successful power plant maintenance organizations, this report outlines good maintenance principles, covering topics such as equipment reliability, work management processes, outage management, lockout/tagout, communications, and human performance.
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.
