2-162245 - Using Wireless Technology to Modernize Power Plant Performance Monitoring

Session Speakers
Session Description

Southern Company has 103 plants in the Southeastern U.S. As part of Southerns effort to reduce system heat rate in the early 1980s, a dedicated generating plant performance group was formed to provide specialized testing and analytical services to Southern. Since 2011, this group has expanded the use of wireless technology for gas turbine tests, cooling tower tests, and cogeneration unit steam flow accuracy verification measurements, reducing the field labor cost by 15% to 40% per test type. From these testing and analysis efforts, significant improvements in plant performance have been made within Southern. Well over 100 tests and performance evaluations are now performed each year with the experience gained adding to an extensive database of performance problems which have been found and resolved.
