The TGUG meeting on Wednesday and Thursday will include presentations by the Turbine-Generator OEMs, consultants, utility representatives and industry support organizations.
As in past TGUG meetings on Wednesday and Thursday evening working group sessions will be held on the selected technical topics identified by the TGUG officer team and EPRI.
On Friday morning a training tutorial will be conducted on "Component Purchase Specifications for Turbines and Generators".
Attendees should establish peer-to-peer industry as well as OEM/Vendor/Consultant contacts and share lessons learned. Participation in this workshop and meeting will better prepare each utility attendee to resolve operational and/or maintenance issues which may arise at their plants.
Comments by past utility attendees:
When I am asked why it is important to attend the EPRI TGUG meetings, I always tell my management the same thing; where else can you meet your peers and have meaningful discussions on turbine technical issues, learn about issues affecting Turbine Generators in the fleet before we experience them so we can address issues before they become a problem and we don’t have to reinvent the wheel on any corrective actions that we implement, and get information on upcoming OEM Technical Bulletins before they are released. Kevin Purkey, Southern Company Services Turbine Specialist
Participation in the TGUG over the past several years has enabled me to establish relationships with leaders with the international Turbine Generator community. These relationships have benefitted both myself and them as we continue to communicate throughout the year on issues of mutual interest. Some of my most invaluable TG “training” has occurred at these TGUG meetings.
