Diagnosing Remote Power Generation Sets Through Satellite Tracking 932403

This paper will discuss the conceptual integration of satellite tracking used for engine diagnostics for remote power generation sets. The significant application of this integration of technology is the capability to diagnose, monitor, make on-line adjustments and maintain complete control of the generation sets miles from their remote locations. The intended purpose for this technology is to assist the operator in the duty of performing diagnostics and monitoring when not physically located near the power unit. Applications for diagnostics through satellite tracking are widespread. However, certain land-based power generation applications are more likely than others to lend themselves to this method of monitoring. Oil field pumping units, continuous and standby remote generations sets and large scale traffic control/hazard lights used in highway construction zones can all benefit from this technology. The history of satellite tracking with an in-depth analysis of sensor monitoring and diagnostic science will also be explored.
