Con Edison has 32 steam turbines and 100 gas turbines in many locations in New York City and Westchester County. A monitoring program is administered from a central organization, but tested and tracked on site. The test results, when trended graphically, are used to predict system problems and to plan corrective action with the intent to eliminate catastrophic unit failures. The monitoring program as outlined can be used as a model to plan a specific program.
