For example, the following criteria can be used for the assessment: insulator tower foundation earth conductor transmission line line conductor circuit Fig. 1 Development of Strategies 33 Line conductor: • • • • • • • Age, Material, Design temperature, Damages, Sag, and change, and etc. Line tower: • • • • • • • • • Age, Material, Construction, Experiences, Type of tower, Quality of steel, Corrosion protection, Corrosion, and etc. Foundation: • • • • • • Age, Type of tower, Damages, Design, Deterioration, and etc.

Regarding the implementation of maintenance strategies, it is practically adopted that the MV/LV transformer is exchanged regardless of the condition of the other operational equipment. The technical condition of the transformer therefore does not have any impact on the decision for or against a total rehabilitation of the substation. The fuzzy logic as described in Sect. 1 is therefore applied to the following decisions: • Building/tower–primary equipment, • instrument transformers–switches–bays.

The technical condition is taken into account indirectly via the hazard rate, for example, if the outage probability or the energy not supplied is calculated. In the opposite, a strategy is understood under the label RCM, which takes both the equipment importance and the equipment condition into consideration. Only the combination of importance and condition leads to an optimal allocation of financial resources regarding the maintenance strategy of assets, which on the one hand have a corresponding influence on the supply and on the other hand are also in a technical condition that justifies an activity.
