Gas Distribution Networks
This project intends to undertake Phase 1 of a potential two phase project.
The scope of this phase encompasses two work packages, the second of which is split into part a and b. Work Package 1 is concerned with summarising the state of the art approaches to statistical modelling of failure for maintainable assets.
Work Package 2a considers the modelling of asset reliability at component and site / system level of detail and Work Package 2b concerns the statistical modelling of asset fault states to arrive at a range of fault probabilities.
A potential Phase 2 would encompass a further two work packages that may be delivered if it is considered that they provide additional value over Phase 1 and extend the understanding of fault propagation and impacts through network connectivity modelling. This would be delivered as a separate project.
The project will be deemed successful, if
- Knowledge on advanced statistical modelling approaches to the NGN project team has been transferred
- Statistical modelling approaches that can be integrated with existing and future systems/tools have been delivered
- The potential benefit of application of advanced statistical modelling approaches developed through the project has been quantified
