Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is a maintenance program that recommends maintenance decisions based on maintenance information by condition monitoring. To apply CBM to industrial systems, it is important to diagnose condition of equipment appropriately based on the knowledge of abnormal condition of the equipment. In nuclear power plant, however, it is quite difficult to obtain the knowledge of abnormal condition. For this reason, simulation is expected to be an effective approach to estimate conditions of equipment instead of data acquisition. In this study, we focused on and built models for a motor operated valve and a pump, since the inspection cost is generally expensive due to the number of them in nuclear power plant. We considered a pump system and analyzed the measurement values in normal and abnormal conditions. Our analytical result reproduces the behavior of the measurement values and shows the characteristic deviation from normal condition in abnormal conditions.
