This Seminar provides a working knowledge of each parameter that is monitored by the GE Turbine Supervisory Instrumentation (TSI). The function and location of each detector along with an operational description of its amplifier is discussed. With this knowledge, the participant has the information needed to reliably calibrate, maintain, and troubleshoot the TSI. Additionally, this information enables the participant to qualify the accuracy of the TSI indications to an operator; thereby providing confidence to the operator when important decisions have to be made.
Technicians, Electricians, and/or Engineers who have a responsibility to maintain this equipment at any fossil or nuclear turbine generator installation. Turbine experience is desirable but not necessary.
  1. State the purpose and function of the Turbine Supervisory Instrumentation.
  2. List the turbine parameters that are measured by the Turbine Supervisory Instrumentation.
  3. State the purpose and give the general description of the information contained in the Manufacturing Instructions, Internal Connection Diagrams, External Connection Diagrams, and Elementaries.
  4. Explain how the need for Turbine Supervisory Instrumentation is affected by the construction of the turbine, turbine valves and auxiliary systems.
  5. For each detector listed below, describe the function and location of the detector, describe the TSI amplifier, how the signal is modified and outputted.
    1. Vibration
    2. Vibration Phase Angle
    3. Shell Expansion
    4. Rotor Expansion
    5. Differential Expansion
    6. Eccentricity
