Abstract : Electricity demand in Nigeria far outstrips the supply which is epileptic in nature. The research presents to a systematic approach for maintenance of turbo generators to reduce power outages for continuous generation of electricity. Energy generated (MWH) is the summation of hourly MW generation on the turbo units multiplied by the number of hours the units are in operation. This is usually indicated on an energy integrator dependent on Unit Availblity (UA). UA is the ratio of the number of hours a unit is available for operation to the number of hours in the period considered. Plant evaluation data were collected to effect reduction in the power outages (downtime of the turbo generating unit) arising from thermal fatigue will be reduced through effective maintenance of heat exchangers, radiators and oil coolers. Vibration monitoring experiment will be used to reduce frequent high temperature arising from shaft misalignment of turbo generators for healthy operating condition.
Keywords : Turbo generators, Unit Availability, Shaft Eccentricity, Operating Conditions, Optimal Power.
