Monitoring and Avoiding Vibrations in Turbines
For smooth operation
Gas and steam turbines are essential components of today's energy supply. While steam turbines are present in most conventional power plants, gas power plants focus on the rapid supply of electrical energy to compensate supply bottlenecks caused by the increasing share of renewable energies in the energy mix.
In both turbine types, dangerous vibrations can occur as potential sources of damage. To prevent this, the turbines are equipped with monitoring systems that measure and analyze vibrations in real time and trigger protective measures when critical conditions occur.
Identifying Hazardous Vibrations
The following components are particularly affected by vibrations:
