System dynamics modelling: application to electricity transmission network asset management

Crisp, Jennifer & Birtwhistle, David (2005) System dynamics modelling: application to electricity transmission network asset management. Australian Journal of Electrical & Electronics Engineering, 2(3), pp. 263-272.


A system dynamics model is presented linking ageing and condition degradation processes, for assets with characteristics typical of electricity transmission equipment. Integration of age and condition permits examination of the effect of various maintenance and replacement scenarios on equipment failure rate, asset population, age and condition. The model is extended to include financial performance using the revenue calculation method currently applied to Australian Transmission Network Service Providers. The paper also discusses variation of the model to account for characteristics of particular types of plant.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
