Dear PowerPlant Chemistry readers:
In this issue, we present the first two articles in a series of five articles to appear in this journal on corrosion
and deposits in water-cooled generator windings. The main goal of this series is to give a detailed
update on the mechanism, prevention, diagnosis, and removal of flow restrictions in water-cooled
generator windings. The series will be continued in the upcoming issues. Please find an introduction to
the series and the first part on flow restrictions by copper oxide deposits here.
As reported in the last issue, the 12th International Conference on Cycle Chemistry in Fossil and
Combined Cycle HRSG Plants was held June 26–28, 2018, in Arlington, Virginia, USA, by the Electric Power
Research Institute (EPRI). Please find one of the papers presented in Arlington here.
I would like to use my space here to give you an update on the PowerPlant Chemistry Forum in Delhi,
India, on November 22 and 23, 2018. The final agenda is now out – please find the invitation and final
agenda here. The Forum provides a platform to acquire knowledge and insights
through discussions and presents an opportunity to share one's own expert opinions and experiences.
We value your influential contributions and hope to see you in Delhi – if you have not registered yet, it's
not too late: registration is still open.
Looking to the future I would like to remind you about a few upcoming events in which our journal is
involved with the organization.
The Third International Conference on Film Forming Substances (FFS 2019) will be held in Heidelberg, Germany, on March 19 to 21, 2019; please find the
first announcement and call for papers here.
The last conference series I would like to mention here is the annual meeting of the European HRSG
Forum (EHF). The Sixth Meeting of the EHF (European HRSG Forum) will be held on May 14–16, 2019,
in Athens, Greece. The PowerPlant Chemistry Journal is the media partner of this event series; the first
announcement and call for papers for next year's meeting can be found here.
As we can't have our eyes and ears everywhere, it is possible that we might overlook one event or another; if you think that there is an important event
missing from our events calendar, please let us know!
I'm looking forward to your letters and e-mails!
