Report from S&T Project 21006: Development and Refinement of Rotor Turning Device for Safer and More Efficient Maintenance and Diagnostic Tasks

A modular system, known as the Rotor Turning Test Suite (RTTS) was designed, developed, and tested under this research. This system allows for turning the rotors of rotating machines within Reclamation’s fleet in a safe, precise, and efficient manner. The RTTS also allows for future expansion by incorporating slow-roll diagnostic procedures into the system software for automated and efficient diagnostic testing, tracking, and trending. Full automation of the turning process is also possible in the future. This report summarizes the basics of this system, and discusses future work to complete and expand the RTTS.
