Operator and maintenance feedback and RCM analysis documentation provide designers with justification for equipment upgrades and modernization. New and replacement units’ design should reflect lessons learned and best practices for improvements on operability, maintainability, and reliability. Failed part analysis: Involves visually inspecting failed parts to identify the root cause of the failure.

Alan Peterson of Utility Services and chairman of the NETA Technical Committee peer-reviewed many chapters for this revision and I thank him for his support. The information on ground resistance measurements and testing was supplied by AEMC Instruments, Boston, Massachusetts, and for which I thank them. In addition, I want to thank the following persons and organizations for contributing and providing information, material, and doing the peer review for the following portions of the book in this revision: Joe Mooney, manager of Power Engineering, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) who helped in writing, commissioning, and testing of microprocessor relays in Chapter 9 and reviewing that chapter; Noah Bethel of PdMA for providing material on the predictive maintenance guide on motors and variable frequency drives including photographs and illustrations, and for reviewing this section in Chapter 10; Dennis K.

Operator and maintenance feedback and RCM analysis documentation provide designers with justification for equipment upgrades and modernization. New and replacement units’ design should reflect lessons learned and best practices for improvements on operability, maintainability, and reliability. Failed part analysis: Involves visually inspecting failed parts to identify the root cause of the failure. It looks at forensic scoring, color, and pitting, particularly of bearings, which are generally the equipment’s weakest components and achieve only 10%–20% of their design life.
