Optimization of Gas Turbine Maintenance Scheduling in PLN Tanjung Datuk Pekanbaru
This study discusses determining the optimal scheduling for maintenance of gas turbine engines in PLN Tanjung Datuk Pekanbaru. The optimal maintenance scheduling is done on critical components, namely turbine blade and AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) using Monte Carlo simulation. The optimal scheduling maintenance scenario is done by generating random numbers from MTTF (Mean Time To Failure) and MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) values and data validity testing. The results of research for optimal checking of turbine engines are once every 10 days with the reliability of turbine engines 43%. The optimal time for repairing a gas turbine in case of damage is 1.49 hours. The checking time for critical components of the turbine blade is 9 days and AVR of 12 days. The scenario of preventive maintenance is likely need special repair or replacement periodically that is 117 days for turbine blade components and 173 days for AVR.
