Expert in Gas Turbines, Turbomachinery, Root Cause Analysis
Expert ID: 733826
Expert knows where all of the strengths and weaknesses are in GE HD Gas Turbine hardware, having developed and led the Departure Record Process for GE Power, and having solved 1000s of PAC cases and 100s of RCAs on blades, vanes, buckets, rotors, combustion systems, inlets, exhausts, and other systems. He wrote the Gas Turbine RCA training at GE in 2015 and trained the global Product Service team in 2015 & 2016. He can leverage his knowledge to help your company's gas turbines operate more reliably, efficiently, and have increased availability. Forced outages are expensive, but they are also predictable.
Expert has successfully extended Combustion, HGP, and Major intervals on Fr5, 6B, 6C, 7B, 7C, 7E, 7EA, 7FA, 7FA+ (7F.02), 7FA+E (7F.03), 7F AGP (7F.04), 9EC, 9B, 9E, 9FA, 9FA+E (9F.03), 7FB, 9FB, 7H, 9H, 6FA (6FA.01) and 6FA+E (6F.03) Gas Turbines, by implementing the Departure Record Process within GE. Over the last 15 years, he has personally reviewed and critiqued 1000s of Departure Records, & led the process from 2006 to 2008 and then trained and mentored engineers at the Bangalore Engineering Center in India to administer the process while he over-saw the technical aspects of each Departure Record. If there's a failure mode lurking in your GE Gas Turbine, Expert know where it is and when it will reveal itself.
