Retrofitting Gas Turbines With Computer Control.
MetadataShow full item record
Retrofitting gas turbines with microprocessor based controls has improved reliability and performance in the areas of speed control, temperature control, and load control. The rationale behind control system retrofits is described. Installation problems and benefits derived from retrofits also is discussed. The details of six heavy duty single-shaft gas turbine retrofits are presented. These turbines drive both process compressors and electric generators at the Amoco Oil Company, Texas City refinery. Turbomachinery control system retrofits can improve reliability and decrease operating costs.
