Changing expectations in the power generation industry continue to present challenges for those who operate generators, both old and new. Older generators, now in their third or fourth decade of service, are either being shut down or rewound with greater expectations for cyclical operation and/or increased output. Newer units face more base load operational scenarios, and their designs are tested by expectations for increased operational reliability with less preventative maintenance and longer periods between maintenance cycles.
This webinar will focus on the most recent trends in generator technology and maintenance practices at power generating facilities.
The webinar will be presented by Howard Moudy, Director of Operations for National Electric Coil (NEC). Howard has been with NEC for the past 17 years and oversees their high-voltage stator coil manufacturing, generator field service operations, and Columbus Service Center, which primarily focuses on the repair, rewind and high-speed balance of rotors and exciters. Howard’s career has spanned a number of companies and positions over the course of 38 years, and his efforts have generally focused on large, high-voltage rotating electric machines with an emphasis on coil manufacturing.
