"The other activities at the Loughborough site, including the transformer manufacturing business, as well as its other facilities in Wales and Derbyshire, will be unaffected following the turbogenerator restructuring.
The goal of the paper is determination of the value of additional EMFs that are created by the leakage fluxes of the back of the stator core of the turbogenerator in the elements of its fastening to the case when operating in non-nominal modes according to the vibration control data.
"This is connected to one-time export of turbogenerator engines in 2016," he said.
Steam propulsion systems on the LNG carriers have at least two turbogenerator sets (turbogenerator sets consist of a low-power steam turbine, which drives an electric generator), and both turbogenerators operate in parallel [11].
Also, after nearly 24 months of operation, issues linger with the bidirectional, high-temperature heating-hot-water Btu meters, affecting three months of data, and the gas use for one turbogenerator had to be interpolated for a different set of three months to complete the annual metering data.
The DIRIS robot will provide Alinta Energy with modern robotic instrumentation and tooling to allow fast and reliable remote inspection of the turbogenerator. It performs critical tests of the generator stator iron core laminations, stator radial wedging system and conducting a visual (video-type) inspection of the inside surfaces of the rotor and stator.
