Abstract

The Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) performed several studies concerning the effects of motor failures onUSpower production. Problems with aging and the lack of preventative maintenance were noted as major contributors to this production loss.

Westinghouse has developed, and successfully utilized, a computer program to assist plants in the decision making process for maximizing the operational availability of their motor fleet. The program considers motors of a fleet as a single, critical to production asset, and aids the operator in decisions regarding the following: 1) Purchase of spares. 2) Rewind and refurbishment prioritization. 3) Long-term budget forecasting.
