Abstract:

This report updates the costs developed for Operating and Maintaining Generator Sets established by the Cost Estimating Relationships CERs in TROSCOM Technical Report 74-12. The methodology employed is based on ratio and proportion analysis, wherein each individual component of Operating and Maintenance O and M Cost is updated using a specialized index. Then, the cost components are reaggregated into a revised O and M Cost, which more accurately reflects the actual cost than would escalation by a single gross factor. The report covers full load and half load operating costs for most common 60 HZ and 400 HZ Gasoline Engine Driven GED Generator Sets, and also those for common 60 HZ Diesel Engine Driven DED Generator Sets. The escalation factor for 400 HZ DED Generator Sets is assumed to be the same as that for corresponding 60 HZ DED Generator Sets, using the previous TROSCOM Tech Report 74-12. The complete statement of methodology is included which allows the analysis to be adapted by the user to fit the specific time period desired. The Generator Sets referenced in this Tech Report are used to support various types of equipment, which means that the cost escalation factors provided should be of value in determining O and M Cost for generators used in a variety of applications.
