Abstract
Several long term vibration problems have cost AEDC thousands of labor hours from maintenance resources. These problems involving compressors, synchronous motors, and turbine engines continue to threaten testing operations and maintenance budgets. The IAC-1044 has been designed to apply advanced signal processing techniques to identify resonances, distinguish acoustically and mechanically driven vibrations, and discern electrical faults from mechanical faults. The IAC-1034, the predecessor to the IAC-1044, is already being used to monitor the health of some turbines used at AEDC. IAC proposes to continue to identify key equipment to include in the Industrial Monitoring solution. Software improvements and new sensor technologies will also be considered to support the configuration and analysis of the new equipment. This may include changes to the real-time operating system running on the IAC-1044 as well as the windows applications used to configure and monitor the results.
