Slides for: Reliability Principles: Smart Grid Asset Life Cycle Management
24 Jun 2021
Alan M Ross
For too long, utility, industrial and commercial facilities have depended upon resiliency or aging principles when looking at the life cycle of grid assets. When we view assets, whose reliability and safety depend upon condition data, under the principles of asset reliability, it is clear we need a different approach to testing, maintenance and life cycle management for a grid to be called “Smart”. This presentation looks at grid assets such as transformers, cable systems, breakers, relays and battery systems from a unique perspective; from that of a reliability professional.
