Steam turbine performance Monitoring

The Valmet DNA Steam Turbine Monitoring application calculates, stores and displays the main performance parameters that indicate condition and operating efficiency of steam turbines. The calculations are based on steam turbine heat balance and built in accordance with appropriate DIN- and ASME-standards.

Features

  • The application includes calculation of the steam turbine heat balance, mass balance and the main performance parameters depending on the steam turbine type and need.

Benefits

  • The DNA Steam Turbine Monitoring provides the power plant maintenance and operating personnel with a tool that helps to detect potential problems in steam turbine operation and analyze the problems that have occurred. This contributes towards proactively responding to failures before they cause unpredicted shutdowns.
  • The extensive storage of history data also enables long-term monitoring of gradual component deterioration, such as turbine-blade-deposit accumulation and thus improves scheduling of maintenance.
  • The DNA Steam Turbine Monitoring application is linked seamlessly to the overall automation applications, which guarantees efficient collaboration between plant management and plant control.

Performance monitoring and reporting

Valmet DNA monitoring and reporting solutions are designed to assist in all areas of power plant operation - from management to production and maintenance.
