Turbomachinery power plant success

This Korean power plant successfully upgraded its turbomachinery equipment despite its remote location, limited local skilled resources and readily-available installation materials. As a result, it has achieved improved reliability, a simplified operating interface and adherence to regulations, all while providing a stable power supply to its customers.

Solution features

> Generator Controls - control for megawatt, speed droop, isochronous, voltage, power factor and MegaVar. We also offer over-temperature limiting, excitation limiting, load sharing, and load shedding.
> Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) - AVR solutions include voltage and current control, voltage matching with “soft start,” and bus voltage matching for synchronizing.
> Steam and Gas Turbine Control - Integrated sequences and controls provide seamless steam header control and machinery protection for generators. We also provide control strategies for reheat steam turbines.

Benefits

> Protects critical assets from operation interruption and damage 
> Enhances productivity and lifecycle of critical assets such as steam turbines and generators
> Enables performance monitoring
> Enables improved Asset Management
> Enables high-speed event recording

TMC Retrofitting

TMC retrofits eliminate mystery boxes and outdated mechanical components. TriconexTM safety systems ensures 2oo3 voting for all trip inputs, electronic over-speed protection, online testing and repair, no single point of failure, and full instrumentation for automatic testing, and continuous diagnostics.

Solution features

Schneider Electric mechanical retrofit capabilities focus on actuators, power units, probes and other physical components that deliver reliable, fault-tolerant performance. The solutions include :

> Trip Block Assemblies (Quadvoter): fault-tolerant, online serviceable and SIL-rated speed indication: active and passive speed probes receive the speed of the turbine and brackets
> Custom hydraulic power units (HPU) retrofits: designed for high- or low-pressure hydraulic solutions 

> TMR servos

> Pneumatic actuator retrofits 

> Custom LVDT brackets for redundant and triple-redundant valve position feedback and control
> Thrust probes and brackets

Benefits

> Reduces installation time through strategic use of laser scanning and other advanced reverse engineering methods
> Increases response and precision through high pressure actuators and servo valves
> Simplifies maintenance through the elimination of OEM components
> Increases service life and smoother operation with separation of lubricating oil and control oil
> Improves redundancy with duplication or triplication of system components
> More precise control — high pressure servos and actuators provide excellent resolution with significantly lower hydraulic fluid flow providing increased speed and accuracy for control
