In the German Democratic Republic about 85 percent of electric power are generated on the basis of raw brown-coal. For the guaranty of a high degree in operational safety and availability greater and greater demands are made upon the supervision of conditions of power station installations as assumption for a preventive maintenance strategy. In the paper it is reported about experiences of supervising components of the water-steam-cycle of conventional power stations. In particular approaches are presented to reduce supervision expenses with simultaneous increase of the reliability in condition monitoring.
