In order to understand how a boiler is performing/ operating, it is critical to obtain data throughout its operation. Data collection and storage methods have evolved through the years improving the quality and quantity of the data. Data is valuable for tracking current unit performance, troubleshooting and helping to narrow down any potential issues/ concerns with performance. Proper use of data collection and analysis may minimize the need for scheduled performance testing except when specific data points are required. This paper will discuss how sensitivity analysis can be utilized to determine the effect lack of/poor quality data has on the desired analysis. It discusses data collection and evaluation for various cases and the relevant ASME codes. Other key features of the paper are the various methods available for data representation, allowing the engineer to easily track key operating parameters.
