Israel Electric Corporation moves towards smarter maintenance
Using sophisticated data models to predict and preempt turbine failures at its power plants
Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) is the primary electricity provider in Israel, which is responsible for building, maintaining and operating the country’s power infrastructure.
IEC generates 95 percent of Israel’s electricity. To meet peak demand, its turbines need to run at full capacity – so it is vital to keep them online and running efficiently.
With the help of Genius Systems, an IBM Business Partner, the IEC team used IBM SPSS Modeler to perform cluster analyses of the data from each of the turbines and create a model of their “normal” behavior during start-up, steady-state and shut-down. With the baselines for each individual unit established, the team was able to compare their performance and begin identifying common problems.
Increased the efficiency of maintenance schedules, costs and resources, resulting in fewer outages and higher customer satisfaction.
