Title: Determination of the Periodicity for Thermographic Tests of the Electrical Equipment
Keywords: thermographic testing, periodicity, inspections, reliability

Abstract: The paper presents a study of the optimal periodicity of testing when aiming to maintain certain reliability. Several methods for the assessment of reliability indicators with a small number of observations are discussed. A methodology for the determination of the period for thermographic inspections, of electrical equipment is given, in the paper.
