A power station is a combination of machines that extracts energy from a fuel. Some power stations burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, or gas. These machines / equipment are essential for generating electricity. Equipment such as turbine, generator, boiler, gearbox etc are termed as power generation equipment.
Concern for the environment and growing power demand are driving power generation equipment manufacturers to invest in new and efficient technological innovations. These innovations bring new levels of complexity both to generation and transmission equipment suppliers. The traditional power grid is rapidly evolving into a smart grid of providers and user/providers. Ensuring the reliability of the power grid is putting more burdens on equipment manufacturers to develop innovative systems relying on high-power electronics to control the safe operation of the equipment.
