Meeting Description and Agenda

This meeting of the ACTC’s Energy, Oil and Gas SIG is being hosted by RWE npower and will cover new condition monitoring technologies for the power generation and process industries. This will span novel algorithms and new tools for assessing the performance of controllers, machinery, and plant component. A vital part of effective condition monitoring is taking corrective action, and so the meeting will include systems at the individual element level and the wider system level including plant safety systems as well.

NEW!! You can now see abstracts for presentations (where available), simply point your mouse at the "Abstract" link.
