This chapter describes how CBM, life-cycle costing and asset management could be applied to rotating electrical machines. The chapter includes examples of electrical machines in context, particularly conventional power generation and wind energy. However, further benefits can be realised if decisions on maintenance scheduling are taken to reduce total life-cycle costs of the whole machine and plant it serves. This requires an estimate of the variable costs of operating and maintaining the plant throughout its life and, increasingly, reliable performance measures, such as energy production, against which to evaluate costs. With this knowledge, the plant or asset owner can operate, maintain, or dispose of that asset on the basis of the information available from these processes.
