TCS offers a steam turbine speed controller that is state-of-the-art and cost-effective solution to regulate the driver’s speed and power. It offers a fully automated speed control during normal and critical operating conditions and features critical speed avoidance to protect plant equipment from damage.
We also provide upgrades for steam turbine speed control that still uses mechanical or legacy electronic control systems to make it compatible with a wide range of control platforms.
Our custom-engineered control system retrofit package delivers a full complement of digital controls needed to modernize a turbine governor. It is an open system that is fully configurable to any industrial steam turbine and is integrated to the train control system.
Our offered steam turbine control system enables fully automated system, which offers a safe operation and startup/shutdown speed control with critical speed avoidance. It has the capability to protect the steam turbine against over-speed occurrences and automatic startups and shutdowns sequences.
Our retrofit solutions are also designed for obsolete hydro-mechanical and electro-mechanical steam turbine systems. TCS has the capability to design and develop state of art condensing and extraction steam turbine controller with variable steam extraction.
It is designed to provide control of the steam turbine extraction pressure set-point, while executing higher priority tasks of limiting process parameters, such as turbine rotor speed, steam pressure at various points, power, steam flow, and control valves positioning.
The extraction controller interacts with the steam turbine speed or process controller through signal exchanges. All our offered solutions are IEC-61131-compliant PLC platform.
