  • Diagnosing wear faults - High-throughput screening of wind-turbine gearbox samples using the LaserNet 230 and automatic sample processor (ASP).

    The major issue for premature failure in wind-turbine gearboxes is bearing failure, which leads to gearbox failure. A wind-turbine gearbox will not survive if the oil is not clean and especially if the hard ferrous particles are not removed from around the bearings. The LaserNet 230 particle counter and ferrous debris monitor has been shown to be an excellent analytical tool for end users to ...

  • Spin Doctors: How GE’s Service-Savvy Approach Squeezes the best from a fleet of 900 Wind Turbines

    Over 150 years ago, a budding English economist named William Stanley Jevons warned that a policy of energy efficiency might not be sufficient to conserve Britain’s dwindling coal reserves. His argument, now known as the Jevons paradox, was simple: Squeeze more energy from less coal, and people will just want more coal. ...

  • Combined Heat and Power (CHP) essentials

    'CHP essentials' introduces the concept of power and heat 'production possibility sets', starting at the cradle of CHP, i.e., the thermal power generation plant. The latter always occasions 'fatal' heat that is either recovered (the 'merit' of CHP) or wasted (condensing). This split paves the way to defining the production possibility sets of CHP plants, shown for steam turbines, internal ...

  • Improve Boiler Efficiency

    In many chemical plants, the electricity the plant uses is derived from a natural gas power plant or a co-generation plant burning waste gas streams. In large boilers (Figure 1), power plants bring together air and fuel (natural gas, waste gas, oil or coal) for combustion, which creates heat. The heat boils the water, creating steam. The steam runs through a turbine, which causes the turbine to ...
