ABSTRACT The subject of FDD (fault detection and diagnosis) has gained widespread industrial interest in machine condition monitoring applications. This is mainly due to the potential advantage to be achieved from reduced maintenance costs, improved productivity and increased machine availability. This paper presents a new FDD scheme for condition machinery of an industrial steam turbine using a data fusion methodology. Fusion of a SVM (support vector machine) classifier with an ANFIS (adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system) classifier, integrated into a common framework, is utilized to enhance the fault detection and diagnostic tasks. For this purpose, a multi-attribute data is fused into aggregated values of a single attribute by OWA (ordered weighted averaging) operators. The simulation studies indicate that the resulting fusion-based scheme outperforms the individual SVM and ANFIS systems to detect and diagnose incipient steam turbine faults.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents entropy generation minimisation model of combined heat and power system. The turbine control valves and heater throttle valves were analysed. The high-pressure control valves regulate the mass flow rate of steam into the turbine, whereas the intermediate-pressure and low-pressure control valves the steam pressure of the turbine extracts 3 and 5. The steam of the turbine extracts 3 and 5 is used for the city-wide heating system purposes by means of the peak and basic heaters. The quantity of the extracted steam used for the city-wide heating system is additionally controlled by the throttles regulating the extracted steam into the basic or peak heater. This results in a double throttling of the extracted steam of the turbine, double generated entropy and a double loss of work. If adequate pressure of the extracted steam of the turbines is maintained by means of the turbine control valves the two heaters for the heating system could operate with the throttles open. As a result, the generated entropy of the throttles of the steam admitted to the heater could be avoided and the amount of generated entropy of the turbine control valves reduced.

    ABSTRACT: RESUMEN El diagnóstico de fallos en las turbinas de vapor tiene una gran importancia por su incidencia en la maniobrabilidad y confiabilidad de estas instalaciones. El estudio de este tema mantiene su vigencia y es objeto de investigación por diferentes grupos a nivel nacional e internacional sobre la base de diversos criterios. Sin embargo no se han reportado resultados de un estudio sobre la criticidad de los elementos mecánicos y los fallos que ocurren durante un período amplio del tiempo de explotación en una o varias turbinas. El objetivo de este trabajo es determinar cuáles son los elementos mecánicos y las fallas más importantes en una turbina de vapor de una Central Termoeléctrica (CTE) durante un largo período de su tiempo de explotación. Para esto se realiza el estudio de los datos históricos de una de las turbinas de vapor de 100 MW de la CTE Máximo Gómez de Mariel en el período comprendido entre los años 2003 y 2010. La relevancia del trabajo radica en la obtención de los elementos mecánicos más importantes y los fallos más significativos del elemento mecánico más importante durante el período estudiado, para lo cual se introduce y evalúa el índice de importancia dadas las limitaciones impuestas por las condiciones de organización específicas de la planta. ABSTRACT Fault diagnosis in steam turbines is very important owing to her effect in the maneuverability and reliability of these installations. This topic remain valid and is investigated by different national and international groups based on several criteria. However there are no published results of a criticity study of the mechanical elements and the faults that occur in a significant operating time for one or more turbines. The objective of this work is to identify the principal mechanical elements and major faults in a steam turbine of a Thermal Power Plant during a long operating time. For this purpose the historical study of one steam turbine of the Máximo Gómez Thermal Power Plant of Mariel between 2003 and 2010was performed. The importance of this work is to obtain the most important mechanical elements and the most significant failures of the most important mechanical element during the period studied, for this, is introduce and evaluate the index of important given the constraints imposed by the specific conditions of the plant.
