Turbomachinery Analysis And Protection
a. Prediction and Analysis of the Reliability of Turbomachinery Installations-Influence of various components on over-all reliability, such as of turbines, compressors, gears, motors, piping, foundations. Critical items in reliability evaluation. b. Identification of Problem Areas in Existing Installations ("trouble-shooting") -How to predict and identify problem areas and probability of shutdown or component failure. Application of protective devices and supervisory instrumentation to prevent or minimize losses. c. Analysis of Turbine Operation to Predict Future Problems-Critical areas in turbine operation. Common failures caused by mal-operation. Instrumentation and protective devices to minimize risk.
