RELIABILITY EVALUATION OF THERMAL GENERATING UNIT USING FAULT TREE ANALYSIS APPROACH By Gurpreet Kaur,Power
Abstrat
The focus of this thesis work is to calculate the reliability of one of the units of a thermal generating plant. Reliability evaluation is based on practical data taken from the thermal generating unit considered for case study. The failure data for one year has been collected and thoroughly analyzed to segregate the most intensive failure reasons. Based on these critical failure reasons, fault-tree analysis for the problem has been done. Then, reliability of thermal generating unit has been evaluated using successive path technique. The results show the poor performance capability of the unit. To improve its performance, to enhance the reliability and to decrease the failure time, certain recommendations have been made.
