GENERATOR SEAL OIL SYSTEM

Eskom power utility utilized Flownex® SE simulation capabilities to mitigate system shutdowns caused by Generator Hydrogen (H2) Seal ring failures. Engineers modelled the Hydrogen seal systems and used the simulated results to identify the case of their system trips. 

Flownex® allowed the engineers to form an improved understanding of their systems and identifying the main contributing factor to these failures, thus preventing numerous future outages due to seal oil repairs, which in turn led to a financial benefit to Eskom.
