Detecting Failing Joints in a Power Plant Using Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Equipment

Published May 7th, 2019 IRMC 2019, C. Maughan, J. Timperley

There are numerous instrumentation systems used in attempts to assess the condition of power plant electrical equipment. The library of papers discussing these instrumentation systems is vast. A few examples are listed at end of paper. [1] – [8] But papers discussing detection of failing electrical connections inside generators or bus systems are limited in number. [9] [10]
This present paper will focus on equipment that will readily detect joints that are in the early stages of distress with the objective of preventing expensive in-service failure.
