Assessing the Lifetime of Critical Plant Components – Temperature, Stress and Exhaustion

Webinar

Day: Thursday
Date: 30th April 2020
Time: 2:30 pm MYT

Green energy sources like photovoltaic plants and wind farms are increasingly feeding energy into our power grids. Since the energy from renewable energy sources is not generated at constant rates conventional power plants are required to step in and fill the gaps. The result is the need for high flexibility and shorter cycles between running at peak and minimum loads. This can have a dramatic impact on the power plant lifetime. Especially thick-walled pressure components are exposed to higher temperature transients, which result in fatigue that needs to be monitored.
TÜV SÜD's Temperature, Stress and Exhaustion (TSE) Software helps to manage the monitoring of the plant's critical components with high precision and efficiency. This enables power plant operators to minimize downtime and execute predictive maintenance services.

ABOUT TSE

The TSE software is a computer program developed by TÜV SÜD that enables rapid, in-depth and realistic determination of a component’s state of repair against standards and regulations. In other words, TSE enables end-to-end optimization of plant operation and extension of the plant life.

IMPORTANCE OF TSE

Operators of conventional power plants face the challenge of competing in a highly competitive market that is influenced by different energy technologies, legal requirements and governmental subventions. To operate a plant with the highest possible efficiency and effectiveness means to minimize downtime, increase flexibility and availability.

This can only be achieved if fatigue of components is monitored and can be predicted early on to carry out predictive maintenance works. A solution that enables to determine the creep/fatigue condition with the measured values of subsequently installed sensors is thus required.

This is possible with TÜV SÜD’s TSE program for plant lifetime assessment and extension. In addition, it enables operators to re-determine the test dates of recurring tests based on the results of an exact creep/fatigue analysis.


KNOWLEDGE SHARING THROUGH COMPLIMENTARY WEBINAR:

POINTS TO BE COVERED IN THE WEBINAR:

  • Technical classification of TSE
  • Current boundary conditions for the operation of power plants
  • How TSE works
  • TSE Project example
  • Conclusion

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS WEBINAR?

Plant owners, Operators, Maintenance and Operations Personnel from Thermal power plants and Chemical, Oil & Gas industries.

BUSINESS BENEFITS

  • Legal compliance (state of repair of components in conformity with regulations and standards)
  • Identification of opportunities for additional improvement of operational flexibility
  • Ensuring component availability
  • Basis of targeted and efficient inspection measures

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

As an experienced provider of third-party testing and inspection services, we strongly recommend you to invest in the TSE software. It enables you to perform the required fatigue monitoring even more efficiently than before. You save time and money while benefiting from significantly increased safety levels and life span of the power plant.
