Power plant condition monitoring systems are pervasive around the industrial space of mechanical systems due to the ever-increasing demand for improved reliability and fail proof operation. Much of the downtime can be obviated with proactive maintenance by measuring vital machine parameters to discover imminent failures. The condition of the turbine and the generator are monitored using the characteristic signatures present in the Acoustic Emanations generated by the vibrating components of the reciprocating parts.
