Recent install @ Sir Adam Beck Generating Station

Posted on

Recently we helped out our neighbors to the north with Hydro TG torsional monitoring in the most prestigious powerhouses in North America. Our friends at OPG were interested in monitoring TG performance and civil structure performance on the Niagara Sir Adam Beck plant. The installations were performed in conjunction with Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) […]

High temperature measurements in the context of aerospace turbines

Posted on

High temperature sensors enable turbine measurements. Our sensors can go significantly above 1000 degrees F, making dynamic strain and pressure measurements a reality for optimizing combustion heat engines. In discussions with an engineer who works with the aerospace industry, I was asked about high temperature measurement parameters that would benefit the optimization of gas turbines… […]

Are you powerless?

Posted on

Could a simple request for electrical power may render you powerless to make a effective engineering measurement? A recent series of inquiries has brought an interesting perspective about how engineers digest and compartmentalize different components of our integrated telemetry technologies. Measurements and wireless power transfer are two aspects of our telemetry that go hand-in-hand. However, […]

The search for truth

Posted on

“Acquiring virtuous signals from the dynamic universe builds a construct in which the true search for truth may begin. The supposition of a static signal only exposes fears of what we do not know. Such beliefs are the old way. The path to understanding any system is to embrace the transient nature of space and […]

SuprockTech’s TDMS featured in EPRI hydropower journal

Posted on

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.
