A new concept is proposed for monitoring the life cycle of basic water-power equipment. The concept has a clearly staged structure, which will contribute to its accelerated practical implementation at establishments within the field. All basic stages of the concept have been tested by the JSC “RusHydro,” including analytical strength substantiation, which is based on modern advancements in the field of mechanics, and drawing upon experience gained by foreign partners within the framework of the international activity of the SEAP Co. and allied branches of industry. Implementation of this concept at the analytical center of the JSC “RusHydro” will make it possible to obtain scientifically verified and valid computational estimates of the technical status and remaining service life of components of basic hydrotechnical equipment in all stages of their life cycle, and as a consequence, a significant reduction in the amount of human-induced emergencies and equipment failures at water-power entities.
