Absence of computer monitoring with automatic failure diagnostics of supplementary machinery of thermal stations has a bad impact on its operation. The main task of supplementary machinery (grinders; fans; smoke-exhausters; coolers; feed, condensate, circulatory and line pumps) is to support the operation of turbine-generator units. It is a common case, when many of the supplementary units are operating without any equipment reserve, and their sudden failure leads to a decrease of quantity and quality of power output, and in some cases – to the whole power unit shutdown.
The systems for condition monitoring and automatic diagnostics COMPACS® provide full-time condition monitoring of supplementary machines and prompting of personnel’s decisions on ensuring the machinery operational safety. For such purpose the units consisting of a drive motor, transmission and actuator are equipped with vibration sensors and the feeder bays of the electric substation – with current sensors
Application of the computer monitoring system for condition monitoring and accident prevention COMPACS® allows to ensure accident-free operation of supplementary machines of a thermal station by means of early detection of developing malfunctions and their constant monitoring in real time.
