Monitoring & Diagnostic Systems

Innovative Power Plant Monitoring = Smarter Infrastructure

As technologies improve and our power generation grid goes global, power plants have to deal with the challenges of improving maintenance downtime, operational flexibility and accurate diagnostics. Over the years, plant managers have spent millions on control and instrumentation upgrades, yet they find it difficult to keep up with the data collection. These concerns are common throughout the industry, and an excellent way to address them is through remote monitoring and diagnostics as part of an integrated, “smart” infrastructure.

Manage Your Power Assets Globally. Anywhere. Anytime.

We let you access and monitor turbine control data and applications from anywhere in the world for added redundancy and flexibility. Our remote support service enables our global network of turbine specialists to remotely monitor and troubleshoot your turbine problems and/or make controls modifications from our offices in Orlando, Florida, or any other location with ground or satellite Internet access.

Implementing Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics

Remote monitoring and diagnostics can be implemented for anywhere from one to all units in a generating fleet, with economies of scale encouraging system-wide integration. The key components of a remote monitoring and diagnostics system include:

  • The plant data acquisition systems and plant data historians
  • A reliable communications network between the plant and a central data hub
  • Analysis software at the data hub, which employs advanced pattern recognition to enable early detection and diagnosis of plant equipment and performance anomalies
  • Operational intelligence experts, who assess the data trends, alarms, and diagnostic reports to determine if corrective actions are needed to respond to a dynamic situation

Designed with your operations in mind

We will work with you to ensure that your data and operations are secured in transit and in storage using a platform that is proactively monitored and updated. Our technical solutions adhere to current standards of cyber security and best practices outlined by the platform provider. Our technical team of engineers are here to assist you with regular updates, the latest features and benefits to maximize your system’s potential.

How it works:

  1. Operating parameters are assessed in real time for any anomalies using scanning and comparison algorithms as well as equipment performance equations.
  2. Whenever an operating parameter is outside of specifications, a real time alarm is generated and notifies all relevant parties of the issue. Also, the TTS monitoring and diagnostics engineers compile operating data and send quarterly reports to operators documenting tuning and performance information and data on each tuning event.

Power Generation simplified, safe and secure

Using a robust cloud-based solution and user-friendly mobile and web apps give you remote access to your system whenever you need it. Make decisions, conduct diagnostics on equipment and act on them quickly to improve response and reduce downtime at your power plant.

This remote "knowledge network" supplements the expertise of our on site staff to provide enhanced problem review and diagnosis, resulting in:

  • Faster turnaround times
  • Shorter outages and maintenance downtime
  • Time and money savings

All remote monitoring support connections use high level encryption and will follow your corporate protocol, ensuring all data is secure and access is controlled.
