Monitoring determines the health of the generators, and corresponding equipment. Condition based monitoring programs can be used as long term planning tools. The tracking and trending capabilities allow plants to determine when to schedule maintenance outages by basing decisions on condition of the equipment rather than a calendar. This ultimately saves plants money on O&M budgets, and frees up resources for other projects.
