Hello everyone. Our company is currently operating a 50 year 900 kW Franics turbine hydroelectric power plant. One of our main objective is to come up with a vibration monitoring plan to maintain the machine. As part of the monitoring plan, we needed to establish a vibration monitoring range to determine if the generator can run unrestrictedly. However, we are currently discussing if ISO's mechanical vibration standards that would suffice since the plant's operation manual has been gone throughout time. Any tips from you guys. We currently considering ISO 10816-3 but I am still a bit skeptical about it. We have installed sensors above the turbine bearing to have it monitored in real time. We really just need the correct standards to establish the right values. Thank you.
