Simulation analysis of reliability on available power consumed versus lube oil quality
Chukwuemeka P. Ukpaka
The effect of reliability on available power consumed was monitored and simulated using MATLAB program and the energy utilization was investigated in view of the variation in the physicochemical properties of the lube oil. This research revealed that the lube oil concentration decreases as the running hour increases and the efficiency in terms of performance dependents on the characteristics of the lube oil. The available power consumed decreases as the lube oil quality decreases and high performance experienced when the total running hours is less than 200 h. The result obtained shows the effect of the lube oil characteristics is significant effect as the load utilization increases and resultantly, the power utilization is affected.
