Project: Design of Railway Power Trains for Better Reliability and Easier Maintenance - Predictive Maintenance

Acronym: PREMAID
Main Objective:
The main objective of this project is to minimize the impact of the component and/or the system aging (conducting to component/system failure) on the commercial use of the trains and therefore allowing higher availability of the traction system. The availability of the equipment is limited by their downtime for maintenance operations.
