INTELLIGENT GAS-TURBINE COMBUSTION MONITORING SYSTEM (GT-ICMS)
Every gas turbine has its control system to automatically de-rate the load whenever it operates outside the “safe” condition.
Among the issues facing the power plant operators is the high combustion dynamics related to the poor gas quality or ambient temperature.
Components damage and power generation losses are some of the outcomes resulting from the high combustion dynamics.
This unique system is designed to predict potential combustion dynamics events and provide a recommendation load at which the machine is supposed to operate to avoid auto de-rate events/conditions. At the same time, the system also maximizes the output load without exposing the machine/related components to unforeseeable components damage risks.
Features and Specifications:
Plant-specific, AI/machine learning-based modeling
Actionable intervention strategies for combustion issues that require instantaneous intervention (poor gas quality, ambient temperature)
Early warning ~ 3-5 minutes before automatically machine de-rate event triggered by GT’s internal control system
Load recommendation throughout the combustion dynamics event to maximize power output and at the same time avoid component damage.
Gas turbine combustion monitoring
Extended application in coal-fired power plants.
