The task was approached from several angles:
  1. Formalizing methodologies and algorithms for calculating technical condition indices in accordance with the Ministry of Energy’s requirements, assessing the importance (risk) of power supply objects based on their impact on the overall reliability of the consumer power supply system, and planning M&R activities to ensure power supply reliability.
  2. Implementing and configuring algorithms in the reliability management information system based on the RelMaint software product.
  3. Generating technical condition and importance indices, automatically creating M&R schedules factoring in these indices, technological constraints, and resource limitations.
  4. Evaluating the effectiveness of implementing M&R schedules generated by the information system.

Interregional Grid Company Implements Reliability Management System

Challenge: The management of an interregional grid company set out to improve the reliability of electricity supply to consumers and reduce losses in the power grid due to power outages.
Result: Implementing the system resulted in an improvement in the quality of repair work planning, leading to an increase in the proportion of planned work to 90%. This, in turn, led to a reduction in unplanned and emergency repairs, a 21% decrease in M&R costs, and a 19% reduction in grid losses.
Increased Proportion of Planned Work
Reduced M&R Costs
