Gas turbine outage odometer

Provides automated calculation and Human Machine Interface (HMI) display of factored fired hours (FFH) and starts (FFS) per GER-3620 to simplify maintenance planning.

Diagnostics and productivity

Software enhancements that improve your capability to quickly diagnose and resolve system issues and efficiently execute system tests and procedures.

Non-optical flame detector

Uses combustion dynamics and other turbine instrumentation signals to reliably detect the presence of flame, avoiding the need for dedicated optical flame sensors. Requires Combustion Dynamics Monitoring (CDM) system.

Liquid fuel (LF) reliability

Multiple options including LF check valve relocation and manual or automatic LF water flush system, plus enhanced control logic to avoid trips during fuel transfers, and relax load restrictions on fuel transfers.

Heavy fuel oil (HFO) package

Model-Based Control of gas turbine operation to better compensate for hot gas path fouling due to HFO operation, plus a smart cooldown process and optional automated wash system to shorten offline water wash cycles to recover performance.

Sliding fuel pressure control

Reduce your gas fuel supply pressure (P2) requirements during start-up and operation to better accommodate low or fluctuating pressure, and possibly enable reduced gas compressor usage.  Additionally, Sliding Fuel Pressure Control can reduce likelihood of trips or runbacks.

Steam turbine fast turndown

Automated fast cooldown process using temperature matching logic in reverse, to safely reduce ST cooldown times by 50% or more, enabling critical path maintenance activities to begin 24 to 36 hours sooner.
