This article is the first of a four-part series which discusses the types of protection systems needed to guard against unexpected failures in high power machinery. This section describes how dynamic vibration and other operating variables can be used to monitor the condition of rotating machinery continuously and on-line. The selection of the proper surveillance and protection system is described in detail, as in the monitoring of vibration. A comparison of surveillance methods for shaft displacement and casing vibration is made. Some typical applications are described as are rotor-position measurements and the display and evaluation of data using a computer.
