Position Summary:

Responsible for executing the Asset Condition Monitoring (ACM) Program at the assigned OG&E Power Supply facilities with a focus on vibration monitoring and diagnostics and equipment balancing of rigid and flexible rotor assets with plain bearings. This position will use asset configuration information, knowledge of the operating context of the asset and process and condition monitoring information to identify, troubleshoot and diagnose complex vibration issues on critical assets. Other responsibilities include, but are not limited to, Supervisory Instrumentation Calibration, Ultrasonic Data Collection and Analysis, Thermographic Surveys, Oil Sample Collection and Analysis of Results and Static and Dynamic Motor Circuit Evaluation and Analysis. This position works closely with ACM Technicians, Reliability Engineers, Process Engineers, Plant Engineers and Plant Operations and Maintenance personnel.

Primary Duties:

  • Monitor for, troubleshoot, diagnose and provide recommended corrective actions for vibration issues on critical power plant assets such as gas and steam turbines, generators, multi-stage high pressure pumps and large centrifugal and axial fans.
  • Working with upper level ACM Engineers or external vendors, perform field balancing of steam turbines, generators and large centrifugal and axial fans.
  • Perform route-based vibration monitoring and analysis, ultrasonic analysis, infrared thermography surveys and motor circuit analysis.
  • Working with upper level ACM Engineers or external vendors, perform modal and/or operational deflection shape (ODS) analysis to analyze, diagnose and recommend corrective actions for resonance conditions.
  • Support Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) and the implementation of any corrective actions identified for the Asset Condition Monitoring group.
  • Develop, review and/or revise standard operating procedures and instructions for the ACM Program.
  • Identify and/or review facility assets to be included in the ACM Program. Based on potential failure modes and asset criticality, recommend monitoring methods/technologies and intervals for each asset.
