Case Studies In Turbomachinery Operation And Maintenance Using Condition Monitoring.
MetadataShow full item record
With exceedingly high downtime costs and the need for efficient operation of turbo machinery, integrated condition monitoring, wherein a number of health parameters are analyzed, is becoming increasingly popular in process plants and in utilities. Most operational problems can be diagnosed by developing a correlation among several key operating parameters. A wide range of condition monitoring approaches are available and this paper shows how several approaches can be used in conjunction with one another to solve operational problems. Several case studies pertaining to gas and steam turbines and compressors are presented. A matrix of condition monitoring techniques is provided and case studies are presented. Finally, future trends in the area of condition monitoring are presented.
