EPRI has released a report chronicling the history and development of Suprock high temperature strain gages in terms of thermal power plant applications. After hitting a limit with interconnect quality of silicon gage technology, new avenues were explored employing novel thin film construction techniques. The resulting gages have been operating successfully in various applications over […]
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) […]
Chris shows off the Suprock Technologies booth at the EPRI Turbine Generator User’s Group Meeting in Savannah, GA 2019. Our usual turbine monitoring systems are supplemented by a host of predictive maintenance and frequency analysis capabilities, with upcoming integration into SCADA and data acquisition systems.
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.
