7F Simple and Combined Cycle Generator Field Repairs
Thursday, December 10, 2020 @ 2:00pm EST/11:00am PST
With the Average Age of the 7F family of units, in both simple and CC configurations, now approaching or, in some cases, exceeding 20 years, their reliability is degrading. Generator field issues and frequency are compounded by an ongoing increase in starts/stops, an issue that’s been covered frequently at all User Forums for the past few years. This technical presentation will highlight the key weaknesses, driven by age, duty or original design deficiency (or a combination), and attempt to prepare asset owner for planning and maintenance. Some key areas discussed will be collector/brush systems maintenance/repair, field end winding issues, field slot component problems (including component migration, insulation delamination, turn shorts, etc.), as well as rewinds. We will also review how to get these items addressed during planned outages, as well as discuss the impacts if they are left to “discover” or unplanned scenarios.
Jamie Clark – Sales Manager
Jamie earned his BSME from Florida Tech in 1996 and began his mechanical engineering career with General Electric in 1997 where he was responsible for the design of generator auxiliary systems ranging from hydrogen cooling and seal oil systems design for conventionally cooled machines, to stator water cooling systems for larger fossil and nuclear generator applications.
From 2000 to 2007, Jamie took on the role of North American Sales Manager for Environment One’s Utility Systems business, responsible for the Application Engineering and Consultative Sales for EOne’s generator hydrogen cooling systems product lines throughout North America and the Caribbean.
Jamie returned to GE in 2007 as Technical Leader for Steam Turbine and Generator Accessory Systems’ New Product Introduction team, responsible for leading the design and execution of new turbine and generator accessory systems and power plant configurations, with an emphasis on total plant installed cost reductions.
In April of 2012, Jamie joined AGTServices as the Sales Manager for all of AGTServices generator service offerings. Jamie is responsible for all sales and marketing efforts, proposal development, operational support and technical conferences.
