Risk-based Planning for Electrical Systems

Presenter: Paul Baker
Reliability Specialist, CRED Consulting Inc.
It's common knowledge that a large percentage of electrical infrastructure—including both industry and utilities—in North America is nearing end of life, and this creates a major challenge. In addition to the large cost of replacing a transformers or switchgear section, it also creates a large disruption to production. These are the main reasons we're in the position we are today, coupled with a lack of understanding on when an replacement or intervention should be scheduled. In this presentation, we'll go through a recent completed project looking at five different electrical asset classes.
