This details the progress of the ENERCON pump replacement project as completed by the Kennesaw State University interdisciplinary senior design group. This project is a two-semester capstone effort for the engineering program at Southern Polytechnic School of Engineering, overseen by Dr. McFall during Fall 2020 and Dr. Khalid during Spring 2021 semesters. The 2020-2021 KSU Interdisciplinary Senior Design team was tasked with completing an Engineering Change Package (ECP) for existing vacuum pumps at ENERCON Station. The mechanical, electrical, and civil students worked together, performing evaluations on existing plant systems to ensure the plant could support the new vacuum pumps. By tying into the plants existing Plant Service Water (PSW) System and electrical grid, and by reusing existing pipe supports as well as designing new ones, it has been determined that the existing ENERCON Station Systems will support the new Nash Liquid Ring Vacuum Seal Pumps and their supporting equipment. All evaluations have been submitted to ENERCON along with all necessary plant documents that have been revised to show the new equipment.
