dc.description.abstractThe objective of this paper is to present a systematic analysis of wear particles contained in used lubricant of steam turbinegenerator of a thermal power station. The turbogenerator was condition-monitored over a period of two years through wear debris and particulate contamination analysis of the oil. Various sophisticated techniques such as automatic particle counter, ferrography,inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICPAES), scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM/EDAX) have been employed to extract the relevant information about the health of the machine. Eventually, a correlation of different techniques of wear debris monitoring on the basis of current investigation ascertains the significance of the collective approach of various techniques to avoid catastrophic breakdowns and expensive component replacements.en
