A Monitor for the Cooling System of a Large Electrical Generator
A monitoring system has been developed for the cooling water system of a modern large power station generator.
The monitoring system learns the characteristics of the generator. The system then regularly predicts the cooling water temperature for each of the conductor bars in the generator, making allowances for the electrical load, the particular conductor bar characteristics and other influences. The predictions are then compared with actual coolant temperatures to check for overheating.
Graphical displays are used to pass information to power station operators. The system incorporates a novel data reduction technique.
