Abstract

Review of operating models for the design of turnaround maintenance of turbo-generators is reported. The operating status and militating constraints to effective and efficient power generation were  identified. Information on series of operating models and new turnaround maintenance strategy  were obtained. The reviewed operating models when synchronized to drive the new turnaround maintenance strategy for the turbo-generators is likely to drastically improve the performance efficiency of the turbo-generators, hence the National grid.
