Afam iv power station, CBM, condition monitoring, inspection,



This study presents a methodology for application of condition based maintenance (CBM) in Nigerian electric power industry. The inspection cost, condition monitoring instruments cost and anticipated failure cost at Afam iv electric power station were investigated using a proposed model. A matrix for decision making that minimizes the total expected cost in the system was determined using combinatorial optimization. This method is highly recommended for CBM management of the power plant.
