We would like to extend a thank you to Harold Breitbach of Energiforsk Thermal Engineering Research Institute for including our TDMS system in their report about torsional vibrations in nuclear steam turbine applications. “Vibration problems in nuclear power plants can originate from different sources. One of these is torsional vibrations in shaft trains, which have […]
Chris explains modulations caused by grid imbalances and their potential effects on steam turbine health.
Grid behavior in today’s power generation environment is a stochastic system that is more variable than in the past. One common issue is the response to economic dispatch, in which formerly baseload thermal generation units are now operating as load-following or peaking units and incurring substantive mechanical and thermal stress. Operation of these units outside […]
