Control Loop Principles
Applied to Combined Cycles

TRAINING OBJECTIVE

 

PEDAGOGY

Understand the principles and the control parameters of a combined cycle that allow for manual operation of the plant.

Length of the course: 3 days

 
  • Theoretical training
  • Practical training on images and schemes
  • Practise manual operation
  • Practical training on a simulator

TRAINING PROGRAM

  • The control loop principles
  • The characteristics of a stable or unstable state
  • Operating in an open and closed loop
  • The role of the enslavement loop
  • The role of the different components of a closed or open loop
  • The behaviour of the different actions of a PID controller
  • The different types of control and examples (speed, flow, heat, level, etc.)
 
  • Different regulations of the combined cycle (speed turbines, electric power,exhausttemperature, combustionturbine, conditioning temperature, fuel temperature, superheated steam temperature,reheated steam temperature, bypass HP/MP/LP, boiler levels, boiler flow, drum levels, smoke temperature, etc.)
  • Analysis of operation of these control loops
  • Reading control diagrams
  • Operating manually rather than automatically
  • Sharing feedback
