Efficiency Testing of Power Station Hydro Turbines.
MTL developed test procedures specifying the testing process/test instruments and supervised the testing including: instrumentation setup and calibration; conduct of testing; post-test calibration and instrument checks. MTL processed and presented the test results to the client.
Efficiency testing enables optimisation of plant operation providing data for calculating efficiency using existing SCADA measurements. With Mercury NZ, MTL pioneered the sliding gate test method as an alternative to the static test method. It provides a more cost effective option for measuring operational efficiency data.
IEC/ASME code compliant testing provides efficiency data for turbine upgrade benchmarking.
