A key factor in maximizing plant availability is efficient turbine operation and as older turbines operate beyond their original life expectancy, better control is a necessity. Accurate control and monitoring of turbine processes extends life cycles and protects plant generation to meet power demands.
Spartan has the ability to retrofit turbines from leading manufacturers, improving their availability and reliability. Emerson’s Ovation steam turbine controls, supplied by Spartan, offers many advantages including a clear, concise view of key turbine parameters, various protection schemes and seamless, fully-coordinated turbine and boiler control.
Ovation’s specialized I/O modules for speed detection and valve position provide additional protection against turbine failures and the built in redundancy and self-diagnostics increases reliability, reducing expensive system downtime.
