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