Oil-based maintenance interval optimization for power-shift steering transmission

The concentration of micron-size particles in used oil is generally obtained by atomic emission spectrometry. These accurate results can be considered as the most important index for real-time reliability evaluation including failure prediction and residual life assessment of power-shift steering transmission in tracked vehicles. Stochastic process and especially Wiener process can be applied in processing the oil spectral data. In this article, 50 used oil samples in total were collected and analyzed in sequence which covered 250 motor hours. The eigenvalue and mean value of elemental concentration in those samples were also revealed by linear regression analysis. Then, the increasing trends and the first hitting times for indicating elements were solved by simulating stochastic differential equations, which were based on the positive drift Wiener process. Comparing to the existing conditional maintenance time, the first hitting time increased about 27 motor hours more (13.7%). The results show that the maintenance frequency can be decreased by a longer time and finally can increase the cost-effectiveness ratio of maintenance.
