Hydrogen Safety: Best Practices for Securing Your Most Valuable Assets

Hosted by Power Engineering, October 2017

This must-see webcast discusses the pros and cons of using hydrogen, methods used to measure hydrogen gas purity and dew point, and issues to consider along with crucial best practices towards ensuring maximum hydrogen safety for the protection of your machines and plant personnel.

 

H2 Auxiliary Systems: Getting the Maximum Information for the Buck

Hosted by IIR, August 2017

The safe operation of hydrogen-cooled generators requires proper practices be followed in order to minimize the chance of a catastrophic events with the potential for massive equipment and production losses, as well as the ultimate endangerment of human life. This must-see, advanced webinar covers:

  • Need for more information in resource-challenged times, touching on training issues; cycling; increased run times
  • Need for safety, including well-written SOP’s; equipment rated for hazardous locations; safety equipment
  • The ‘Dream’ H2 auxiliary system: breakdown P&ID; gas supply; gas manifold; instrumentation

Best practices in machine purging and leak detection will also be covered during this intensive 1 hour webinar by noted industry trusted advisor, Steve Kilmartin, as he explains in detail the ‘Intensive Care & Handling’ of hydrogen necessary for maximum safety, risk mitigation and increased efficiency for large turbo-generators.

 

Preventing Catastrophe: Detecting & Locating Generator Hotspots

Hosted by Business Review, September 2016

Today’s power plant operator faces a range of challenges, from the reduction of well-trained plant personnel, to load cycling, to extended periods between outages and grid fluctuations brought about from renewables. The added stress placed on large power generators – both hydrogen and air-cooled – lends increased credence to online condition monitoring technologies and risk mitigation strategies.

This webinar will also review the use of Generator Condition Monitors to detect overheating in air-cooled generators. Recent advancements in air-cooled generator designs have resulted in increasingly higher power ratings. The higher power densities place significantly greater stresses on the materials and structures, making slight decreases in cooling efficiencies much more critical. Probability of overheating in these air-cooled machines becomes greater as designs are pushed closer to their critical limits.

 

Utilizing Tiny Clouds to Monitor Large, Air-Cooled Generators

Hosted by Energy-Tech magazine, June 2016

Look inside of the world's earliest warning hot-spot detector and its further emerging service in power plants worldwide. This webinar discusses risk mitigation specifically and how you can protect your assets during this session in which the technology and strategy behind condition monitoring for air-cooled generators is covered.

Hydrogen Safety: Best Practices for Large Turbo Generators, Gas Monitoring and Purging

Hosted by Energy-Tech Magazine October 2013

Recent catastrophic events have reinforced the critical importance of safety and risk mitigation strategies in power plants worldwide.

Demand for increased generator rating, without increasing the physical size of the generator, has led to hydrogen being utilized as a coolant medium. The minimum size (megawatt output) of a generator to be considered for the use of hydrogen as a cooling medium will vary between manufacturers, but the fact that hydrogen has better heat transfer characteristics and is less dense (providing less windage losses) has made it a standard coolant for large turbo-generators.

Although hydrogen is 14 times more efficient than air in removing heat and is the lightest of all gases, there can be major disadvantages if not used properly. Hydrogen can be very explosive when mixed with air, and it will lose efficiency when its purity decreases.

Additionally, high moisture levels in the hydrogen can lead to generator component failure. This webinar discusses the pros and cons of using hydrogen, methods used to measure gas purity and dew point, and issues to consider.
