Turbine Generator Condition Monitoring

Iris Power provides the sensors, instruments, diagnostic software and services needed to ensure your condition monitoring program provides the information required for you to understand the health of your turbine generators, prioritize corrective measures and plan maintenance outages prior to failures.

Turbine Generator Condition Monitoring Solutions

Partial Discharge Monitoring

Partial discharges are small electric current pulses that occur as a result of insulation degradation by mechanisms like load cycling, loose windings and contamination. Iris Power provides solutions for partial discharge monitoring under normal operating conditions to understand the health of your asset and plan maintenance in order to avoid costly failures.


Rotor Flux Monitoring (Synchronous Machines)

Rotor magnetic flux variations are the result of the degradation of the rotor winding insulation by mechanisms like load cycling, thermal aging and contamination. Iris Power provides solutions for measuring the magnetic flux in the generator in order to plan maintenance requirements.


End-Winding Vibration Monitoring

Stator end winding vibration monitoring solutions measure the radial and tangential vibrations of stator end winding to provide advanced warning on potential failures. Aging of insulating blocking and bracing material can shrink or loosen resulting in increased end-winding movement which leads to significant collateral damage.


Shaft Voltage and Current Monitoring

Shaft monitoring to indicate the presence of high levels of voltage or current on the motor or generator shaft in order to detect poor grounding shaft performance prior to bearing failures.


Offline Testing

Offline testing solutions to determine the condition of stator windings, stator core and rotor in generators and motors
