Process & Controls Tuning

Conducts a formal tuning program for simple to complex processes with the goal of responsive and stable operation over the full operating range of the process.

Control System Tuner

The ability to tune control loops both simple and complex process/control logic.

PROJECT: 45 MW Biomass Boiler Stability
• Successfully conducted a full boiler tuning program on the upgraded combustion control logic achieving remarkable stability seldom seen on a biomass boiler burner a extremely diverse fuel mix.

PROJECT: Boiler Controls Upgrade Project
• Completed the dynamic response tuning for stable and rapid load changes. In addition, finalized the feed forward characterizations tuning.

PROJECT: Gas Compressor Control Logic Upgrade Project
• Successfully completed tuning for extremely stable pressure control during all modes of operation including a gas turbine trip, loss of lead compressor, flying compressor swaps, and all standard loader operations.

PROJECT: Gas Turbine Refurbishment & Turbine/HRSG Controls Upgrade Project
• Successfully tuned the 4 element & single element control in the Plant Master for extremely stable steam pressure control of the HRSG for all loads of the gas turbine. This tuning included function generator characterizations and dynamic response tuning.

PROJECT: Hydrogen Sulfide Incinerator Replacement for Geothermal Generation
• Completely characterized and established the initial and final tuning parameters for all the PLC controlled processes for the H2S incineration process. Unit was commissioned as the most stable incinerator owner had in service.

PROJECT: Refurbishment of Large Boiler Pneumatic Combustion Controls
• Characterized and established all new tuning parameters for this large boiler/turbine generating unit that still used the old Bailey pneumatic controls. This tuning provided very stable automatic control not seen in the last 10 years!

PROJECT: Simultaneous Restoration of Two Biomass Power Plants
• Completed a tuning program of the primary control loops necessary for stable automatic operation of the biomass combustor process, boiler controls, and turbine controls.

PROJECT: Steam Drum Level Control Stability
• Completed formal tuning of the new drum level control loops and achieved stability to allow placing controls in full automatic. This allowed the unit to be placed back into service.

PROJECT: Twin 335 MW Units Complete Controls Tuning Program
• Conducted a very formal tuning program of all control loops associated with both 335 MW sister units. Achieved significant improvements in safety, efficiency, responsiveness, and stability.
