  • A workshop was convened December 10--12, 1991, in Scottsdale, Arizona, at which utilities, manufacturers, developers, and researchers came together and shared experiences and knowledge. More than two dozen papers were presented, and several panel discussions were held. Exhibitors displayed new products and held demonstrations. Key points the workshop covered the following key topics: Motor predictive maintenance; advanced monitoring tools for generator and motor insulation; experience with flux density probes and on-line partial discharge detectors for turbine generators; MICAA, an off-line expert system to diagnose motor and generator winding condition; water-cooled stator winding leaks, particularly testing stator cooling water systems formore » hydrogen leaks and locating the leaks without the use of water; on-line expert monitoring systems for turbine and hydrogenerators; and generator refurbishment. Individual papers are indexed separately.« less
  • Annual testing is standard preventive maintenance for steam traps. When found bad, a trap has been leaking (on average) for six months. Predictive maintenance uses test samples to learn the traps` operating lives. By testing only a fraction of the traps and replacing traps before they leak, predictive maintenance reduces annual average steam trap costs from $34 to $10 per trap. Demand is lowered because 33% of the savings result from reduced steam loss. District heating systems have inherent advantages applying predictive maintenance for their customers. As steam conditions are the same across the system, test sample results can bemore » applied across the system. This can ease the negotiation of a performance contract, as it is difficult for others to compete. Because 67% of the savings come from economies of scale in trap replacement and reduced steam trap testing, district heating systems can increase profits and service while lowering heating costs.« less
  • The major objective of the workshop was to identify future NASA needs for technology that will allow the management of subcritical cryogenic fluids in the low gravity space environment. Workshop participants were asked to identify those technologies which will require in-space experimentation and are thus candidates for inclusion in the flight experiment being defined at the Lewis Research Center.
  • Four information packages prepared to provide background information to workshop participants are included. The workshop session topics include: (1) management aids and software; (2) spare parts, purchasing, stores, and tools; (3) designing for maintenance and maintainability; and (4) impacts on maintenance.

  • Papers are presented on the state of the art of outage planning and maintenance management for both nuclear and fossil-fuel power plants. Discussions include management aids, purchasing and stores, designing for maintainability, and impacts of other activities on maintenance. Each paper was separately processed for the Energy Data Base. (HDR)
