Application of reliability-centred maintenance technology on electric trains
Tsang, H.L. & Ho, T.K. (2002) Application of reliability-centred maintenance technology on electric trains. In Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Traffic and Transportation Studies (ICTTS 2002), American Society of Civil Engineers, Guilin, China.
This paper demonstrates the application of the reliability-centred maintenance (RCM) process to analyse and develop preventive maintenance tasks for electric multiple units (EMU) in the East Rail of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC). Two systems, the 25 kV electrical power supply and the air-conditioning system of the EMU, have been chosen for the study. RCM approach on the two systems is delineated step by step in the paper. This study confirms the feasibility and effectiveness of RCM applications on the maintenance of electric trains.
