Good condition and lifetime data is necessary as basis for estimating remaining lifetime and failure probability for power system components.
Condition data and information about faults and performed maintenance is already today stored in the Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) of power companies and network operators. However, the data is not prepared for lifetime analyses.
The aim of the research project SysLife is to create a system that utilizes existing information in order to establish better estimates for remaining lifetime and failure probability of components in the power systems.
