14-16 July 2020, Nottingham, UK

The 11th International Conference on Modelling in Industrial Maintenance and Reliability (MIMAR) will take place in Nottingham, UK from 14 – 16 July 2020. This event is the premier maintenance and reliability modelling conference in the UK and builds upon a very successful series of previous conferences. It is an excellent international forum for disseminating information on the state-of-the-art research, theories and practices in maintenance and reliability modelling and offers a platform for connecting researchers and practitioners from around the world.

The submission deadlines for abstracts and the optional full paper for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings are listed below. All submissions are subject to rigorous review before an acceptance decision is made.

Power plants are not functioning to the fullest 100 % of the time. Maintenance and inspection of some components require them to be off-line in time, however, this can be planned such that customers continue receiving power from the electrical grid, steam or district heating from other plants. Unplanned outages due to failures or external conditions may cause surprises and can lead to situations in which the demand is not satisfied at short term at large costs.

In this book unavailability is modelled both qualitatively and quantitatively, in order to optimize power plants efficiency.

The book is derived from earlier papers presented at ESReDA, PGMON, VGB working groups and other committees while the author was working with KEMA and its legacy companies and departments NRG, DNV GL and DEKRA.
