In order to ensure that National Grid manages its assets as

enters a regime of proactive asset management where appropriate.
Large scale integrated condition monitoring of transmission assets
will allow failures to be predicted and/or mitigated, maintenance to be
planned more efficiently and will improve the safety of staff by
providing up to date knowledge of the condition of assets to which

This research and development programme covers the area of Smart
Asset Management (SAM) and involves extensive research into
condition monitoring, data analysis and data collection techniques.
The purpose of SAM is to provide National Grid with safer, more

and greater real time knowledge of asset conditions.
Research is being carried out on methods for condition monitoring
and methods of data collection and visualisation for a wide range of
