It can be seen that due to the procedure, the lines should be maintained in the order no: 6–7–1–2, etc. (Fig. 12a). On the contrary, an inspection should be provided for the lines in the order no: 30–11–13–14, etc. (Fig. 12b). The numbering of the lines is according to the identification in Fig. 10. The lines no. 1 and 2 (Fig. 11) are in relatively poor condition. However, they have a low importance, so that the priority of these lines for a maintenance activity is low. 4 Assessment of a Maintenance Measure In general, the decision depends also on the commercial assessment, which maintenance measure, such as replacement or intensive overhaul to shift the replacement, should be carried out, beside technical and regulatory requirements (Sect.

Here, the condition of the equipment is plotted on the ordinate and the importance on the abscissa. According to Fig. 3, a cross in the upper left corner (c * 100, i * 0) represents equipment which is indeed in a poor condition, but whose failure will not have any major impact on the entire system performance as a result of the low importance. In contrast, a cross in the lower right half (c * 0, i * 100) represents a component that is in a very good condition, a failure of which, however, would have significant consequences for the reliability of supply.

In addition, it is also possible to apply the evaluation by utilization of fuzzy logic tools. In this case, critical assessments can be weighted separately or knockout criteria are introduced (Sect. 3). Importance assessment The determination of the importance of an asset is always a subjective evaluation; it can be defined by a variety of different criteria, which can also be combined. These criteria may include in case of an electrical system the following items, for example: • • • • • • • • • • • • • Voltage level (110 kV; 380 kV), Location in the network (power station, overhead line bay), Investment costs, Distance of site from nearest workshop, System topology (radial network, meshed network), Amount of energy not supplied, Number of supply interruptions, Hazard rate of equipment, Power flow carried by equipment, Sociological influence of energy not supplied (hospital), Business influence (penalty in case of energy not supplied, loss of revenue), Influence on the considered system in case of an outage, Interference of the surroundings resp.
