Learning objectives
Training students to work in the assembly, maintenance and overhaul of energy plants and process equipment, life cycle optimization and risk assessment, along with determining the date of necessary reconstruction, revitalization and modernization. The aim of the first part of the course is to train students in the assembly procedures of energy systems. The aim of the second part of the course is to teach students the basics of maintenance, especially in the implementation of overhaul activities (concepts, technologies, diagnostics, etc.).
Learning outcomes
Application of knowledge about assembly processes, degradation of materials and wear and tear of life components of energy and process plants. Use and use of calculations of project definition and estimation of life and risk determination. Also, students will use knowledge about constructing and using failure tree and designing elements based on reliability. In addition to the above, students will be able to apply the procedures for defining maintenance interventions, creating maintenance plans, defining the appropriate technology for restoring spare parts, defining maintenance costs and basic evaluation of maintenance success.
Basic concepts, characteristics and historical development of assembly. Examples of assembly systems. Assembly processes. Assembly operations. Methodology of designing assembly systems. Design of assembly products: principles, methods. Creation of the assembly plan. Assembly technologies of power plants. Software support for designing and simulating the operation of assembly systems. Calculation of investment costs and assembly costs. The role of assembly in maintenance procedures. Assembly quality control. Basics of energy system maintenance organization. Principles of design definition and lifetime assessment of energy and process plant components. Possible damage mechanisms and possible equipment problems. Application to maintenance – monitoring of material condition, periodic tests and optimization of test programs. Technologies and models of energy plant maintenance. Organization of overhaul in power plants. Maintenance costs and success. Design and maintenance management.
Teaching Methods
Lectures in written and partially electronic form, auditory exercises in written form, sample examples of calculation tasks, computer support. Independent preparation and presentation of the seminar paper. As part of the class, the student will get to know the technologies of installation and maintenance of energy plants by visiting them in the field.

Evaluation and grading
For the selected technological scheme, the student should plan the necessary areas, the method of delivery, collection and assembly of individual parts, develop the assembly technology of each detail, then integrate them into a whole and make a term plan with the disposition of the construction site for assembly. Colloquiums are held at 6-7. and 13-14. week in the form of a written exam. Class activity is assessed by making short tests on the content of the class at the end of some classes. The final exam refers only to theoretical questions.
