ABB Life Expectancy Analysis Program

(ABB LEAP)
for stator windings of high voltage
rotating machines
ABB LEAP facilitates the management
of machine maintenance

ABB LEAP is much more than just a package of inspections: it is a systematic approach
to maintenance management.
The materials and components of electrical machines are
subject to thermal, electrical, ambient and mechanical stresses. Strength
This leads to a process of degradation as materials lose Premature
strength over time (blue curve). failure
Failure
Operating stresses – both steady state and transient – are also
present (red curve). At the point where the two curves cross, Stress

failure becomes imminent.


Time
ABB LEAP provides the information needed for timely action to
re-position the red and blue curves.

Appropriate maintenance can help to re-draw the red, and


possibly even the blue curve, preventing premature failure
and extending the life of the machine.

What makes ABB LEAP special is its ability to track the development of defects over time.
As a result ABB LEAP can be directly integrated into a maintenance plan.

ABB LEAP offers real benefits

– Optimizes maintenance planning for electrical machines


– Supports efforts to extend machine lifetime, boosting Return On Investment
– Facilitates decision making for long and short term maintenance and run-replace decisions, even when data can only be collected once
– Minimizes downtime at lower risk levels
– Provides inputs for life cycle cost estimation

ABB offers a package of DC (PDCA) and AC (Non-Linear Insulation Behaviour, Partial Discharge and Tan Delta & Capacitance Analysis)
measurements, to assess the condition of the stator winding.
