Motor Failure Survey



Modern thermal power plants (including nuclear power plants) are, in fact, among the biggest world industrial plants and electric energy consumers. Depend ing on boiler water feeding pumps drive (steam turbine or electric motors), self consumption of thermal power plants amounts from 4.5% to 8%, respectively. Having in mind that typical modern thermal power plant units burning coal have installed capacity of 800 – 900 MW, while nuclear power plant units reach 1.500 MW, the self consumption of a twounit nuclear power plant of such capacity amounts to 135 - 240 MW – which is equivalent to the installed capacity of some older thermal power plants.
