You need dependable troubleshooting tools that help find and report problems fast, and keep equipment running and reliable. That’s why Flir infrared cameras are essential. They let you see invisible heat caused by electrical resistance, mechanical wear, and other issues early enough to help you keep things operating safely and head off expensive downtime.
Generators are exposed to extreme electrical, thermal and mechanical stresses over the course of use. Continuous thermo-mechanical stresses and thermal cycles can have a severe impact on the stator core, and over time, this can lead to deficiencies in the core insulation.
Protective relays are designed to be responsive to an abnormal current or power flow. They are used in combination with medium voltage circuit breaker (above 600 volts) to sense abnormalities and isolate disturbances, with minimum disruption to the electrical system, preventing damage to the equipment.
