Technical diagnostics, maintenance and reliability

In the Technical Diagnostics, Maintenance and Reliability Laboratory, investigations are carried out to optimize apparatus and components in production and energy technology. With the help of measuring instruments, energetic flows and other physical quantities are investigated in energy generation and transmission plants. The students learn how to use different measuring systems and acquire the basic knowledge for the selection and optimisation of suitable preventive maintenance measures. This enables them to improve plant availability, reliability and operating efficiency in technical plants.


The laboratory is located on the campus of Ansbach University in classroom 92.0.1.
