  1. 1. On maintenance optimization for offshore wind farms

    Author : Francois Besnard; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle cost; optimization; maintenance; maintenance planning; Offshore wind energy; maintenance strategy; maintenance support organization; reliability;

    Abstract : The maintenance cost is known to be an important part of the levelized cost of energy generated by wind parks. Operational costs can be significantly reduced by optimizing decisions for maintenance strategies, maintenance support organization and maintenance planning. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards strategic development of maintenance and its effects on production performance A hybrid simulation-based optimization framework

    University dissertation from Skövde : University of Skövde

    Author : Gary Linnéusson; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strategic development; maintenance behavior; maintenance management; sustainable change; tradeoff optimization; system dynamics; discrete event simulation; problem structuring; multi-objective optimization; decision support; Production and Automation Engineering; Produktion och automatiseringsteknik;

    Abstract : Managing maintenance in manufacturing within an economical short-termism framework and taking the consequential long-term cost effects into account is hard. The increasing complexity of managing maintenance and its impact on the business results calls for more advanced methods to support long-term development through effective activities in the production system environment.

  3. 3. Load and Risk Based Maintenance Management of Wind Turbines

    University dissertation from Skövde : University of Skövde

    Author : Pramod Bangalore; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optimization; wind energy.; supervisory control and data acquisition SCADA ; condition monitoring system CMS ; Artificial neural networks ANN ; maintenance strategy; maintenance planning; maintenance management; life cycle cost;

    Abstract : The cost of maintenance is a considerable part of the total life cycle cost in wind turbines, especially for offshore applications. Research has shown that some critical components account for most of the downtime in the wind turbines. READ MORE

  4. 4. Maintenance optimization for power distribution systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Patrik Hilber; KTH.; [2008]

    Abstract : Maximum asset performance is one of the major goals for electric power distribution system operators (DSOs). To reach this goal minimal life cycle cost and maintenance optimization become crucial while meeting demands from customers and regulators. READ MORE

  5. 5. Load and risk based maintenance management of wind turbines

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Pramod Bangalore; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; condition monitoring system CMS ; optimization; supervisory control and data acquisition SCADA ; maintenance planning; Artificial neural network ANN ; life cycle cost; maintenance management; maintenance strategy; wind energy.;

    Abstract : Wind power has proven to be an important source of renewable energy in the modern electric power systems. Low profit margins due to falling electricity prices and high maintenance costs, over the past few years, have led to a focus on research in the area of maintenance management of wind turbines.
