Reliability centered maintenance practices using line ranger network in power distribution
Author(s): Dr. Ashok Kumar Tiwari
Abstract: In the current context, it is essential for distribution utilities to ensure uninterrupted power supply to their customers. The primary objective is to provide a consistent and reliable service while prioritizing safety. This involves a range of activities such as planning, coordination, analysis, integration, and effective communication, as well as condition monitoring and tracking. To enhance safety culture and achieve operational excellence, we are implementing Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) practices. RCM aims to optimize reliability and costs by utilizing tools and techniques rooted in reliability-centered principles, supported by data and analytics. The emphasis is on prioritizing reliability over mere availability, while keeping costs optimized. It is important to note that distribution reliability significantly impacts customer satisfaction and has a direct influence on electricity costs. By implementing RCM and focusing on reliability, we aim to improve workers' confidence and morale, enhance productivity, increase operational efficiency, achieve better safety outcomes, and reduce overall risk levels. This paper presents benefits of RCM with application of line ranger in maintenance of power distribution system.
