Condition Monitoring System for Solar Power Plants with Radiometric and Thermographic Sensors Embedded in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
The photovoltaic solar energy industry is expanding, and there is therefore a need to increase and improve its maintainability, operating costs, availability, reliability, safety, life cycle, etc. The aim of this article ...
Techno-Economical Advances for Maintenance Management of Concentrated Solar Power Plants
Concentrated solar power (CSP) capacity has experimented a high grow- ing worldwide. Nowadays, CSP industry is focus on decrease the operation and maintenance (O&M) costs and to set the adequate non-destructive testing ...
Reliability analysis of detecting false alarms that employ neural networks: a real case study on wind turbines.
Operations and maintenance tasks are critical to the reliability of a wind turbine. The state-of-the-art demonstrates the effectiveness of reliability centred maintenance, but there are no research studies that consider ...
Ice Detection Using Thermal Infrared Radiometry on Wind Turbine Blades
Wind farms are located in areas with a high probability of ice occurrence. Icing involves problems such as energy losses, mechanical failures and downtimes. The priority is to detect icing in order to avoid these ...
Evaluating the challenges associated with the long-term reliable operation of industrial wind turbine gearboxes
(IOP Publishing, 2018-12)
Wind turbine gearboxes are required to operate under adverse operational conditions over a long service lifetime. Unfortunately, gearbox designers are yet to achieve the reliability anticipated by wind turbine manufacturers ...
New methods for the condition monitoring of level crossings
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-05-13)
Level crossings represent a high risk for railway systems. This paper demonstrates the potential to improve maintenancemanagement through the use of intelligent condition monitoring coupled with reliability centred maintenance ...
