Abstract

Analysis of the operational experience and diagnostics of turbogenerators is used to show that the actual life of a turbogenerator should not be treated as the decisive factor for making judgment on the necessity of its replacement or updating. The efficiency of diagnostic service and inspection of long-operating and newly commissioned turbogenerators is proved on the basis of results of a study of over 100 turbogenerators of various types and capacities. It is shown that timely detection and removal of flaws in the initial stage of their development is a substantial factor determining the possibility of extending the service live and ensuring reliable operation of turbogenerators.
