JS energy Team developed a solution that monitors a system and/or component performance in conjunction with technical and economic factors. Based on a system’s critical parameters and economic analysis, a point in performance characteristics is identified, from which the system will no longer operate at its optimal point – hence, higher economic losses can be expected. The system degradation monitoring thus triggers an alarm giving information about maintenance needed and about the type of required maintenance. This enables the operator to act in timely manner, ensuring proper maintenance and, in a long term, ensuring that a system will continuously operate in an optimal way, both with respect to the technical as well as economic perspectives.
The system degradation monitoring can be applied on the system and/or a component levels. Common applications are found in the following components:
