Turbo Generator. FMEA. Thermoelectric.


In the electrical sector, the quality of their systems is extremely important, since the electrical sector works in an interconnected way, in which the occurrence of problems in a generating unit interferes in the transmission system and, consequently, in the final customer. This work aims to use FMEA (Failure Mode Analysis and Effects), as a tool to analyze the occurrence of faults and increase the reliability of a system in a thermoelectric plant. The system chosen in the thermoelectric power plant for the execution of the FMEA is the fire protection of the Turbo-Generator. The methodology used in the development of this work is the formation of a multidepartmental team for brainstorming, mapping the causes and effects of failures; use of building tools and analytics of the FMEA, the results were efficient in the day to day being important in the cognitive aspect to the entrepreneurs and employees.
