  • On-line measurement of partial discharges in high voltage rotating machines. 

    Joshi, Abhijit R. (Robert Gordon University School of Engineering, 2011-09)
    The on-line condition monitoring of rotating machines is given paramount importance, particularly in Oils and Gas industries where the financial implications of machine shutdown is very high. This project work was directed ...
  • Optimisation of wind turbine inspection intervals. 

    Andrawus, Jesse A.; Watson, John; Kishk, Mohammed; Gordon, Heather (Multi-Science Publishing. http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/030952408786411921, 2008-10)
    ANDRAWUS, J. A., WATSON, J., KISHK, M. and GORDON, H., 2008. Optimisation of wind turbine inspection intervals. Wind Engineering, 32 (5), pp. 477-490.
    The choice of correct inspection intervals poses a serious challenge to industries that utilise physical assets. Too short an interval increases operational cost and waste production time while too long an interval increases ...
  • The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. 

    Andrawus, Jesse A.; Watson, John; Kishk, Mohammed; Adam, Allan (Multi-Science Publishing Co. Ltd. http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/030952406779994141, 2006-12)
    ANDRAWUS, J. A. et al., 2006. The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. Wind Engineering, 30 (6), pp. 471-486
    Common maintenance strategies applied to wind turbines include ‘Time-Based’ which involves carrying out maintenance tasks at predetermined regular-intervals and ‘Failure- Based’ which entails using a wind turbine until ...
  • Wind Turbine Maintenance Optimisation: principles of quantitative maintenance optimisation 

    Andrawus, Jesse A.; Watson, John; Kishk, Mohammed (Multi-Science Publishing Co. Ltd. http://dx.doi.org/10.1260/030952407781494467, 2007-03)
    ANDRAWUS, J. A., WATSON, J. and KISHK, M., 2007. Wind turbine maintenance optimisation: principles of quantitative maintenance optimisation. Wind Engineering, 31 (2), pp. 101-110
    Maintenance optimisation is a crucial issue for industries that utilise physical assets due to its impact on costs, risks and performance. Current quantitative maintenance optimisation techniques include Modelling System ...
