TURBINE FUNCTIONALITY AUTOMATION
25 September 2012
The Metso DNA automation system has now been strengthened to include new control applications for steam and gas turbines, pulverised coal-fired combustion optimisation, and overall machine condition monitoring.
The DNA system is also reported to be pioneering usability applications in process control work.
"The integration of applications for turbine control, protection and management into the Metso DNA automation system provides customers with an easy and costefficient method to get all turbine functionality in one common system,” said Edward Coll, regional vice president for Metso Automation Energy and Process Systems.
Functions included for turbine control are auto turbine startup, full arc to partial arc transition,MW control, and several protection features, including over-speed and power load imbalance.
