To facilitate the maintenance of hydroelectric groups and ensure the production of electrical energy, we defined a decision making tool to help the construction of maintenance plans by integrating the concept of risk for a Francis turbine currently operating in Colombia. As the risks are generally expressed in terms of human knowledge, it seems very interesting to use fuzzy logic to solve this kind of problems. Moreover, it can also be applied in case of detectable failures (via sensors) or undetectable failures. This work has been done in collaboration with EAFIT University in Colombia.
