System 1 Tips Tricks Vol3 Issue 3 Mar 2012 Recip Plots

  1. 1. March 2012, Volume 3, Issue 3 BENTLY NEVADA SYSTEM 1® TIPS & TRICKSDear System 1® User,This issue is aimed at those of you who use our reciprocating compressor solution with System 1. There are a numberof recip plots that are recommended beyond the preconfigured plots auto-created in System 1 Display. In this issue,we’ll show you how to create these additional plots.We hope you enjoy this issue!Sincerely,Your North America FAE teamThis month’s tip by: John Kitchens, Field Application Engineer, Houston, TXVersions: User Level:6.5 and higher Power User Diagnostic UserApplies to: IT GroupSystem 1 Plots Mid Level User Occasional User New User Creating recommended recip plots1 There are a number of recip plots that are recommended beyond the preconfigured plots auto-created in System 1 Display. These are:  Rod Position Plot (for systems with dual probe rod position)  Recip Waterfall Plot  Acceleration versus crank angle  Pressure versus crank angle  Various Trend Plots  Flow Balance (Adiabatic and Measured)  Pressure (Discharge and Suction for each Cylinder– All in one plot)  Gas Temperatures  Valve Temperatures
  2. 2. 2 Creating the Rod Position Plot (see step 3):3 1. Go to System 1 Display 2. Expand the machine hierarchy 3. Locate the Rod Position Vertical component 4. Right click on it 5. Select Plots 6. Select Rod Position and it is created 7. Save the plot so it isn’t lost when exiting. 1 5 2 6 7 3, 4
  3. 3. 4 To create the waterfall plots: 1. Go to System 1 Display. 2. Expand the machine hierarchy. 3. Locate the parameter desired; remember if selecting pressure, you will need to go down one more level in the hierarchy to the pressure transducer. 4. Right Click. 5. Select plots. 6. Then select RECIP waterfall plot (not the waterfall plot). 7. Save the plot so it isn’t lost when exiting. 1 5 7 2 3, 4 6
  4. 4. 5 To create the trend plots: 1. Go to System 1 Display. 2. Expand the machine hierarchy. 3. Locate the desired parameter; remember if selecting pressure, you will need to go down one more level in the hierarchy to the pressure transducer. 4. Right Click. 5. Select plots. 6. Then select Trend. 7. Then add the same parameters from the different components as desired. 8. Save the plot so it isn’t lost when exiting. 1 5 2 6 7 3, 4
  5. 5. 6 Temperature Trend PlotDID YOU KNOW?We offer an on-line on demand webinar specific to reciprocating compressors. This webinar isan introduction to monitoring reciprocating compressors and understanding the selection &design of the monitoring system. The webinar consists of 2 parts. You can take the webinar online or you can download it in WVM or iPhone format so you can watch it at any time. Thewebinar is presented by Gaia Rossi. Gaia is a Lead Application Engineer in GE Energy. She iscurrently supporting the European team on condition monitoring systems solutions. Herexpertise includes condition monitoring and vibration analysis, measurement and analysistechnologies, asset maintenance strategies and reciprocating machinery.Click here to access the webinar on the Bently Nevada website.Bently Nevada Technical Support:bntechsupport@ge.com775-215-1818Bently Nevada website:http://www.ge-mcs.com/en/bently-nevada.htmlSystem 1 Blog (You’ll need to join the forum):http://supportcentral.ge.com/blog/blogs_frame.asp?prod_id=20858
