Optimizing Plant Performance

Slight misadjustments of mechanical and electrical components can cause great harm to a gas turbine’s rotating parts and impact its performance. This impact can also affect the heat recovery steam generator and the steam turbine output.

This presentation explains the devices and components most likely to cause degradation of performance and reliability for gas-fired plants. This will include the effects of gas valve, IGV and instrumentation calibration on the DLN combustion system, firing temperature and emissions.
