A regular schedule for testing Cat generators will reduce the impact of the repair procedures on operations, which could protect income. The troubleshooting efforts should be used to detect small problems that could lead to larger problems. Therefore, the smaller repairs can be completed before a larger problem causes the generator to fail completely. Any detected problems should be corrected. There should also be efforts to perform repairs before a problem is detected. Therefore, parts should be replaced near the end of an estimated service life and before the parts fail.


The inspections and testing procedures will ensure that the generator continues to provide power for operations. Therefore, each part and connection should be inspected for damage. Heat, chemicals, water and a striking force can affect the normal operation of power systems. The inspections should be used to begin processes for carefully monitoring the efficiency of the generator. Any problems should be corrected during periods of noncritical operation.


There should be logs with recorded information about the inspections. The details should include observations about the condition of the parts or connections. The logs can be used to schedule repairs during opportune periods that will not affect operations. There should also be information about the normal service life for a part, which will enable the technicians to calculate estimates about when a part will fail. The data can be used to develop a maintenance schedule for replacing parts.


The repairs to the generator should be completed when the generator is not needed for critical operations. Therefore, parts should be replaced if the technicians anticipate that the parts will fail soon. The impact on operations will be reduced by performing preventative maintenance procedures during opportune periods. The completed repairs should be closely inspected for a period of two weeks, which will ensure that there were not any problems that had been caused by the repairs.

Equipment Upgrade

Eventually, a generator may be replaced with a different model. Companies could choose to invest in new equipment that will provide more power. The old generator can be sold to RLN Energy, which would ensure that the equipment would become available for another company. RLN Energy helps companies to get power for operations and assists with maintenance efforts for power systems such as Cat generators. A functioning generator will allow operations to continue for a client and protect the income from projects.
