Equipment Reliability: Basics Matter Now More Than Ever
Custom content for GE Digital by studioID
The implications of these accelerating changes in how fossil fuel power plants operate are profound. They underscore not only the increasing need to function in ways for which they weren’t originally designed but also the vital importance of enhancing asset and plant reliability and availability.
Rather than provide consistent baseload power, for example, many coal and gas power plants cycle often or operate in low-load or load-following modes in response to the increase in intermittent renewable generation. In this playbook, we explore:
How changed operations emphasize the importance of reliability
Why there’s room for reliability improvement
The importance of predictive maintenance software and analytics to bolster reliability
Why asset performance management is key to predictive maintenance
