The Role Of Online Aerodynamic Performance Analysis.
MetadataShow full item record
Continuous online aerodynamic performance monitoring of turbomachinery is crucial to plant operation and maintenance and is a key part of a thorough machine reliability program. Integrating machine real-time performance along with mechanical parameters (vibration data, thrust, bearing temperatures, and oil condition) makes for an all-encompassing condition-based maintenance program resulting in better maintenance and reliability decisions. Case studies of machine problems and the need to extend the time between overhauls are discussed. The benefits that are realized from implementation of online performance monitoring are presented.
