Wind Energy Facility Reliability and Maintenance [chapter]

Eunshin Byon, Lewis Ntaimo, Chanan Singh, Yu Ding
2013 Energy Systems  
In this chapter, we provide a comprehensive account of the existing research regarding wind energy facility reliability and maintenance. We group the relevant studies into three major categories.  ...  With operational experience accumulated for more than a decade, the most recent focus has been shifted to achieve a more structured approach using analytical and/or simulation methods.  ...  The corrective maintenance cost can be twice (or more) higher than the preventive maintenance cost [17, 38] .  ...

Reliability with STOL

1968 Journal of Aircraft  
Although this type of display has received enthusiastic pilot comment during simulator studies, operational data are limited at this time.  ...  The foregoing factors do not exist for VTOL type of air- craft. If a VTOL landing is not correct the first time, the pilot has the option to stop, get oriented, and then proceed to land.  ...

Study of Flight School Pilot Incident Data: Implication for Educators

R. Troy Allen
2008 Collegiate Aviation Review International  
Meaningful data was derived under each of the pilot certificates and recommendations were made to improve safety.  ...  Flight training presents some of the most dangerous times in a pilots flying career. Lack of experience, decision-making abilities and youth can create a recipe for a potential disaster.  ...  The scenario is a familiar one usually resulting in a fatality. Therefore, accident data in some flight regimes is the only data available.  ...
