Power distribution companies must establish an optimal maintenance schedule that balances reliability and efficiency of a number of widely scattered facilities. Conventionally, Japanese power utilities divide their distribution areas into multiple inspection areas, and they maintain high reliability by periodically inspecting each area. Such a time-based maintenance scheme is generally inefficient. This paper proposes a method for optimizing inspection schedules of Japanese distribution… CONTINUE READING
