RISK-DSAM Risk-based Distribution System Asses Management

RISK-DSAM Risk-based Distribution System Asses Management

Asset management is a relatively new concept for electricity distribution companies in Norway. The concept is gaining momentum as a way to cope maintenance and renewal of a generally aging infrastructure under increasing requirements from various stakeholders; owners, authorities, regulators, and customers.

RISK-DSAM

However, the implementation of risk based methods for asset management imposes significant changes for distribution companies, in particular related to the way they handle the risks related to the maintenance and renewal of their networks.

The project provided relevant background and knowledge for the implementation of risk based asset management in distribution companies.

RISK DSAM was a five year competence building project at SINTEF Energy Research, sponsored by the Norwegian Research Council in the RENERGI programme, 9 network companies in Norway and France and ELFORSK Sweden.
