EPRI fleet-wide & generator on-line monitoring interest group meetings

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 (All day) to Thursday, October 31, 2013 (All day)

DoubleTree by Hilton – Magnificent Mile, Chicago , United States

The objectives of this popular annual EPRI meeting are to learn from industry experiences how to integrate the standard instrumentation (eg, temperature, pressure, vibration sensors) with the single purpose on-line monitors and to learn about different techniques that have been already implemented by others. The meeting allows for open peer-to-peer information exchange among EPRI members, researchers, and vendors.  

Chad Stoecker and Brian Courtney of GE Intelligent Platforms will be speaking:


Chad Stoecker:

Advances in predicting and diagnosing equipment problems in M&D centers

Companies around the world—across industries and across OEMs—are using predictive analytics to monitor and diagnose process parameters and mechanical behavior of combustion turbines and their driven assets. They’re doing it themselves, and they’re doing it with the help of outside monitoring & diagnostics centers. We’ll talk about how they’re monitoring their combustion turbines and balance-of-plant equipment and identifying problems early. We’ll discuss use cases on detection methodologies, successes, lessons learned, customer value, and ongoing maturity of predictive analytics and diagnostics.


Brian Courtney:

The Prescriptive Promise: Next-generation asset management

Mr. Courtney will discuss how to maximize return on assets and business productivity with an advanced and integrated platform. This platform can enable customers to:

  1. Collect, archive, and distribute tremendous volumes of real-time information (Industrial Big Data) at extremely high speeds and low costs—as never before possible—allowing for greater insight into equipment performance.
  2. Visualize role-based data to get the most useful information to each individual.
  3. Analyze the data to predict and diagnose equipment problems early and also optimize processes.
  4. Reduce costs, risks, and time-to-benefit with an already integrated solution, backed  by professional services.
