Current Probability of Failure for Towers

Description

This function calculates the current annual probability of failure per kilometer EHV Switchgear The function is a cubic curve that is based on the first three terms of the Taylor series for an exponential function. For more information about the probability of failure function see section 6 on page 30 in CNAIM (2017).

Usage

pof_towers(
  tower_asset_category = "33kV Tower",
  foundation_type = "Foundation - Fully Encased Concrete",
  paint_type = "Paint System - Paint",
  placement = "Default",
  number_of_operations = "Default",
  altitude_m = "Default",
  distance_from_coast_km = "Default",
  corrosion_category_index = "Default",
  age,
  observed_condition_inputs_steelwork,
  observed_condition_inputs_paint,
  observed_condition_inputs_foundation,
  reliability_factor = "Default"
)

Arguments

tower_asset_category

String The type of Tower asset category

foundation_type

String Foundation type of the tower

paint_type

String Paint type of the tower

placement

String. Specify if the asset is located outdoor or indoor.

number_of_operations

Numeric Number of operations for the tower

altitude_m

Numeric. Specify the altitude location for the asset measured in meters from sea level.altitude_m is used to derive the altitude factor. See page 107, table 23 in CNAIM (2017). A setting of "Default" will set the altitude factor to 1 independent of asset_type.

distance_from_coast_km

Numeric. Specify the distance from the coast measured in kilometers. distance_from_coast_km is used to derive the distance from coast factor See page 106, table 22 in CNAIM (2017). A setting of "Default" will set the distance from coast factor to 1 independent of asset_type.

corrosion_category_index

Integer. Specify the corrosion index category, 1-5.

age

Numeric. The current age in years of the conductor.

observed_condition_inputs_steelwork

Named list observed_conditions_input

observed_condition_inputs_paint

Named list observed_conditions_input

observed_condition_inputs_foundation

Named list observed_conditions_input conductor_samp = c("Low","Medium/Normal","High","Default"). See page 146-147, table 192 and 194 in CNAIM (2017).

reliability_factor

Numeric. reliability_factor shall have a value between 0.6 and 1.5. A setting of "Default" sets the reliability_factor to 1. See section 6.14 on page 69 in CNAIM (2017).

Value

Numeric. Current probability of failure per annum per kilometer.
