Power and automation technology group ABB has launched Transformer Intelligence, a sensor-based monitoring solution for electricity transformers. The Swiss firm will also invest $30 million in a new manufacturing site for its low voltage products division near Memphis, Tennessee.
Advanced manufacturing technologies are seen to have an unrivalled impact on the design of gas turbines and power plants. "In the future, we'll be able to achieve new levels of intricacy in parts using laser melting technology," forecast Willibald Fischer,…
Two stage turbocharging offers the ability for operators to optimize consumption for specific load profiles, according to German engine manufacturer MAN Diesel. “In power generation, fuel consumption accounts for more than 80 percent of all production cost. The extra turbochargers…
By sharing global component performance data, power generators can reduce operational expenditure (OPEX) and increase the reliability of their equipment through risk assessments, said Dr Liane Smith, founder and MD of Wood Group Intetech. "Comparing the relative performance of components…
UK technology developer ITM Power has delivered a rapid response Power-to-Gas PEM electrolyser system to RWE's site in Ibbenbüren, marking the third such energy storage system installed by ITM in Germany.
Energy market regulators are called on to provide stronger incentives to utilise fast-start generation assets with part-load capability. “To utilize flexibility currently available in the system and attract new investments in flexible solutions, flexibility must be rewarded by the market,”…
Testing of the world’s largest turbine is currently underway by manufacturer GE at its test facility in Greenville, South Carolina. Dubbed ‘Harriet’ the 9HA gas turbine can deliver up to 600 MW of output.
Combustion processes in gas turbines will be examined and validated at Siemens' new Clean Energy Center in Ludwigsfelde, just outside Berlin. The German engineering giant has invested €100 million ($113.8m) in its test center for gas turbine burners with the…
Direct Carbon Fuel Cells (DCFC) are getting into focus as new method of generating 'clean electricity' from fossil fuel sources, potentially providing effective means of power storage to help stabilise the grid.
Rising demand for renewable gas is increasing the need for monitoring systems to control the Injection of fuel into natural gas networks, according to German equipment manufacturer Elster. “Our system is vital to analyse not only the volume but the…
