41 days and counting…

…to the next T2E3 LM6000 Performance seminar.

This year, the seminar will be held in Palm Springs, CA; at the same location as the WTUI conference.

We will spend 2 days discussing the performance characteristics of the GE aeroderivative gas turbines – mostly the LM6000. 

LM6000 units PA through PG will all be discussed – although the focus will be on units which are applicable to the people in attendance (which is expected to be PC and PD).  The impact of Chillers, SPRINT and DLN will be covered as well.

The seminar includes some hands-on exercises for taking measured performance and correcting it to reference conditions, as well as exercises for predicting performance (output and heat rate) for tomorrow’s forecast weather conditions.

Other items covered in the seminar include instrumentation required for performance testing and performance monitoring, and what is included in an ASME code-level performance test (following ASME PTC-22).


More details, including a full agenda are on the website:

You can also ask questions here in the comments, or you can send them to me direct at

If you miss the seminar, but attend WTUI – please stop by for a chat.  I’ll have a booth in the exhibit hall and also plan to attend all the conference sessions as well.

See you in 41 days… and counting!

Power Planters

A contact from LinkedIn recommended a new site for people working at Power Plants…

I thought I would share the site here with you as well. It is a network site, like LinkedIn or FaceBook, with a twist: Members can join different power plants. You can search through the power plants already listed on the site, or add new ones – and join any that you have worked at in the past.

There are also overview groups for coal plants, gas plants, nuclear plants and more.
They currently have over 400 members all over the globe.

In today’s world where we all have more to do than time exists in a day, this may be one more stop you don’t have time to make… but, then again, if you can find someone to help with an issue quickly, because in two clicks you can find someone who works at a site with similar equipment to yours – this just might be a time saver in the long run.

I’ve joined, and setup my profile on PowerPlanters. I hope you join me.
