ABB’s next generation monitoring systems GMS600 will simplify and enhance generator circuit-breaker (GCB) monitoring. Built on the already established GMS600 technology, the updated version offers unique features such as SF6 gas monitoring and trending (GMS600-G), temperature monitoring of primary conductors (GMS600-GT) and enhanced operating drive supervision.
Based on ABB’s well-proven Relion® Series 650, GMS600-G and GMS600-GT provide an accurate indication of time remaining before the GCB needs servicing, an efficient data logging system and an intuitive network interface via web client application.
GMS600 provides full control of GCB operational parameters enabling preventive and predictive maintenance. It supports the overall increase of power plant safety and reliability whilst enabling cost-effective lifetime management by the innovative Value Base Customer Care (VBCC) concept of ABB. VBCC supports power plant operators and maintenance engineers to facilitate the highest operational availability of their GCB over the entire life cycle. The newly developed analysis tool will be used to extrapolate measured GMS600 data by applying sophisticated prognostics algorithms and enable ABB experts to provide valuable service recommendations according to customers’ requirements. The results are trending charts including calculated service due dates.
