Oxide deposits in a generator’s stator cooling water system can reduce cooling water flow, increase operating temperature, and lead to generator load reductions and even failures. Improper ‘layup’ practices for taking this cooling water system off-line can contribute to oxide deposits. This report discusses best layup practices.
With more power plant cycling, it has become increasingly important to identify effective, economical methods to remove moisture from low-pressure steam turbines for short- and intermediate-duration layups. This study conceptualized and examined a new approach for turbine moisture removal.
