Energiforsk is a research and knowledge institute that advances and coordinates energy research in Sweden. They strive to remain a natural hub for energy research – impartially working for the benefit of future energy systems.
Efterklang has written an investigation report about vibration measurement pitfalls. Results are based on interviews with the nuclear power plants in the Nordic countries and Efterklang’s own experience in the field.
About the report: Vibration measurements is an important part of the nuclear power plant condition monitoring. Knowing that the measured results are correct is vital. If you are an experienced user you are often aware of all the common pitfalls and know how to avoid them, but for an inexperienced user it is valuable to get information on how to avoid common pitfalls. In this project experienced vibration experts have been interviewed and common pitfalls are documented. It is important to share experience on pitfalls, it is often very difficult and time consuming to detect, investigate, analyze and to solve the mistakes in measurements.
The report was published in October 2021 and can be downloaded via Energiforsk website, click here.
