Asset management is one of the key components in a transforming electric power industry. Electric power industry is undergoing significant changes because of technical, socio-economical and environmental developments. Also, because of restructuring and deregulation, the focus has been on transmission and distribution assets that include transmission lines, power transformers, protection devices, substation equipment and support structures. This study aims to provide a detailed exposure to asset management classification, various interesting maintenance methods and theories developed. The work encompasses the issue of data management in recent years. Because of the use of various smart metering devices, large amounts of information are being collected. The advent of data-mining techniques has changed the asset management scenario, and it has been covered in this survey paper. In the end, it also discusses various risk assessment techniques in asset management developed and used for academic research and industries. It is accompanied with survey results from pan-European Transmission System Operator (TSOs) on various aspects in asset management.
