Preventative Maintenance Monitoring in a Hydropower Plant

Delphin TopMessage DAQ System for Vibration and Process Monitoring

Hydropower PlantCAS DataLoggers recently provided the data acquisition solution for a hydropower plant setting up hydro turbine condition monitoring for preventative maintenance. Personnel worked without any clear indications of the hydro turbine’s status for detection of developing equipment problems that could help safeguard against critical damage. Therefore management needed to monitor and analyze various plant parameters including shaft vibration measurement, bearing vibration measurement, generator air gap measurement, and plant process signals including mV, mA, RTD, TC, pulse, PLC communication data, etc. Read more on our applications note page.
