Our TDMS torsional vibration system has been featured in thus month’s EPRI Journal. It outlines how our data from our sensors has helped Duke Energy establish a more comprehensive plan for their upcoming upgrade at Bad Creek Pumped Storage Station.
“By using the sensors, we’ve identified frequencies of concern that indicate torsional vibration,” said Duncan. “We can use this information to pinpoint problems with the new turbine design.”
The monitoring system also revealed the plant’s normal vibrational frequencies so that operators will know when it malfunctions. For example, the team found that each of the facility’s two operational modes—generating electricity and pumping water into the upper reservoir—produced different frequency signatures.
