Rankine Cycle Power Plant Control Room Operators, Supervisors, and Managers must be familiar with integrated turbine-boiler control. All Rankine Cycle plants must coordinate the control of the boiler and the turbine generator so that the load of the unit can be changed without creating plant upsets that could cause the unit to trip. Several modes of operation are commonly used for integrated turbine-boiler control, which includes, but are not limited to:
Ensuring operators, supervisors, and management are well-trained on these various turbine-boiler control modes is critical toward maximizing plant efficiency, performance, and reliability. If there is a knowledge gap at your facility in these areas, FCS has extensive experience providing the training needed to get your people up to speed.
