Steam Turbine Control

Having high quality control for the steam turbine ensures the process remains stable with the highest possible efficiencies as well as increased reliability.  Less than adequate speed control often results in manual control or frequent operator intervention in order to overcome speed fluctuations.  Manual control leads to inefficient operation as well as increasing the risk of machine and process trips.  It also can lead to longer start times and machine trips during the start sequence.

Designed to be flexible to meet your steam turbine control needs

The CCC Speed and Extraction controllers provide high quality control accuracy and improved machinery protection through our advanced control algorithms.  Our controllers are designed to control all types of API 612 Special Purpose turbines including single valve and multi-valve turbines, single extraction/admission turbines as well as double extraction/admission turbines.  Our configurable and flexible automatic start and stop sequencing algorithms ensure smooth and safe loading and unloading of the turbomachinery train.  Some of our key features include:

  • Overspeed Avoidance
  • Automatic Start and Stop Sequencing
  • Critical Speed Avoidance
  • Break Away Control
  • Automatic Warm Start-up Sequencing
  • Variable Loop Gain

In addition to integrated Speed and Extraction control, our Speed control application has integrated control features for the following applications:

  • Generator Control for synchronous generators
  • Power Recovery Train Control
