Valmet DNA Heat Recovery Steam Generator Performance Monitoring application provides power plant personnel with valuable information about HRSG performance, condition and operating efficiency – both in real time and retrospectively. Continuous monitoring of the main HRSG parameters is key to increasing steam production and reaching financial targets.
The Valmet DNA HRSG Performance Monitoring application continuously calculates, displays and stores the main HRSG parameters. These include HRSG efficiency calculations based on HRSG heat and mass balance and built in accordance with appropriate standards.
In addition, the solution helps power plant maintenance and operating personnel detect potential problems in HRSG operation and analyze those that have occurred. This prevents failures proactively – before they cause unpredicted shutdowns.
Extensive storage of history data enables long-term reporting and trending of performance parameters, thus helping detect gradual changes in HRSG performance, follow deterioration of parts and improve maintenance planning.
The application can be modified based on the process and customized to the specific features of the HRSG in question. Its user-friendly interface ensures all data on HRSG performance is easily available.
More importantly, the application is seamlessly linked to the overall automation applications, guaranteeing efficient collaboration between plant management and plant control.
