3 Steps To Monitor Critical Electrical Assets

Electric utilities strive to improve reliability in the face of challenges such as fewer operators, aging assets and increased cycling.

This white paper describes the three steps for deploying condition-based monitoring on critical electrical power assets which will lead to a proactive – and eventually, predictive – maintenance strategy
