    Author : Julia Nilsson; Lina Bertling; Ulf Sandberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : electrical poduction systems; windpower; nuclear power; maintenance management; RCM; RCAM; LCC; mathematical optimization; opportunistic maintenance;

    Abstract : Electrical production in Sweden today is mainly from nuclear and hydro power. However, there is large increase in renewable energy like wind power and the installed new capacity goals are large. Several electrical production sources are important for the sustainability of the energy system. READ MORE

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

    Author : Pramod Bangalore; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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.
