Iris Power Qualitrol solutions provide information required by generator operators to understand the current condition of their assets, prioritize corrective measures and plan maintenance outages prior to failures.
Stator Partial Discharge Monitoring
Partial discharge monitoring provides information on the small electrical sparks that occur within the insulation as a result of aging or deterioration. Iris Power solutions help plan maintenance requirements prior to insulation failure and shorts.
Stator End-Winding Vibration Monitoring
Stator End-Winding vibration caused by loosening of the windings and thermal cycling can lead to fracturing of the copper conductors in the windings or faults due to insulation wearing. Iris Power solutions provide information on the location and severity of end-winding vibration in order for corrective actions.
Stator Wedge Tightness Testing
Loose stator wedges can lead to coil vibration and erosion of stator insulation. Iris Power stator wedge tightness testing provides a consistent and quantitative means of identifying the location and severity of loose stator wedges in order to plan rewedging or other necessary repairs.
Rotor Core Shorted Turn Detection
Rotor magnetic flux variations are the result of the degradation of the rotor winding insulation by mechanisms like load cycling, thermal aging and contamination. Iris Power provides solutions for measuring the magnetic flux in the generator in order to plan maintenance requirements.
Stator Core Lamination Integrity Testing
Stator core lamination integrity can be degraded through thermal and mechanical stresses. The Iris Power EL CID test detects shorted laminations and is the accepted world-wide solution for determining maintenance needs.
Air Gap Monitoring
Air Gap variations occur with the flexing or movement of the stator and rotor due to operating centrifugal forces, magnetic forces and thermal effects.
Global Sensor Installs on Rotating Machines
On-line Monitoring Provider for Motor and Generator windings
Iris Power solutions provide information on the location and severity of insulation integrity in order to plan maintenance requirements prior to insulation failure and shorts through partial discharge monitoring of small electrical sparks that occur within the insulation as a result of aging or deterioration.
Integrated key trending parameters
Remote alarms indicating the need for more detailed review of data
Air gap monitoring has become an established tool for dynamically measuring the distance between the stator and the rotor in salient pole machines such as hydro-generators, pump storage generators and large water pump motors.
Low profile capacitive sensors designed for accurate distance measurement
Iris Power stator wedge tightness testing provides a consistent and quantitative means of identifying the location and severity of loose stator wedges in order to plan rewedging or other necessary repairs.
Great flexibility in test set-up
Quick, easy collection and interpretation of data
Accurate, reliable and consistent results assist in maintenance decisions
