VZÚ Plzeň hosted traditional conference in Srní from 24 to 26 September 2019.
This year, we organized the 14th year of successful conference titled “Improvement of Component Lifecycle for Power Engineering Apparatuses in Power Plants” in Srní in Šumava Mountains. The themes of the conference followed up thirteen previous successful years. In particular, the core theme of the conference was assessment of lifecycle of power engineering machineries (turbines and accessories, boilers, steam generators, generators, pipelines, pumps, fittings, and more) in classic and nuclear power plants aimed at extension of the lifecycle beyond originally designed parameters under application of contemporary diagnostic techniques and results of the material and design development. Also new teachings from mathematical modelling of processes of damage and use of information technologies to record, process, and evaluate data for evaluation and lifecycle management were included as a themed component. Attention was also paid to the legal framework in the field of technical safety of the power engineering machineries. The conference focused on nuclear part where contributions from LTO (Long Term Operation) of NPP were preferred, and the part devoted to LTO of classic power plants. Special attention was paid to the impact of non-standard operation conditions on lifecycle of turbo-set induced by volatile condition in Czech transmission system. Further thematic area was the one of primary production of the components of power engineering machineries, repairing, finding out and dealing with defects causing failures, or even emergency condition of the machineries in connection with the use of new technologies, e.g., in welding field.
