Designed to replace the existing control panel suite with all control and protection functions:

PLC controller, simplex, duty/standby or TMR hardware configuration. Programmed with:

- Fuel governor control

- Start up sequence control

- Alarm and trip protection

- Temperature/pressure monitoring

HMI hardwired and PC based

AVR for generating sets

Generator protection

Compressor surge control

Systems designed to interface seamlessly with the retained plant enabling:

Step change in reliability

Enhanced functionality

Vastly improved diagnostics

Improved maintainability

Our team of design engineers use the latest software and design techniques to produce an integrated system that will:

Minimise the system cost

Reduce the outage time for installation

Produce a payback period based in months rather than years

System design

Any non-standard I/O can be included using spare modules and channels which have been pre-wired. This allows other plant devices to be included without costly system re-design.

Control and protection functions include:

PLC controller programmed with the following functionality:

- Fuel governor control

- Start up sequence control

- Alarm and trip protection

- Temperature/pressure monitoring

HMI hardwired and PC based

AVR for generating sets

Generator protection or compressor surge control, depending upon drive application

The PLC program also includes the TCL phase matching synchronising software, which greatly reduces synchronising time and hence start-up costs.

The supply can include the TCL EGV gas fuel valve or Posiflow liquid fuel system. Alternatively the controls can interface with the existing fuel valves.

The pre-developed system provides a cost effective solution without the cost associated with a one-off design.

GE Frame 3 and 5

TCL have developed a standard control system for the GE Frame 3 and 5 engines. The system includes the necessary inputs and outputs to interface with any Frame 3 or 5 standard plant devices.

TCL have developed a standard control system for the Ruston gas turbines in the range 1MW to 6MW. The system includes the necessary inputs and outputs to interface with standard plant devices.

In the case of the TA range all hydraulic control devices are removed and their functions programmed into the PLC. This greatly improves reliability and aids fault finding.

SMARTStart Gas Turbine Starter
SMARTStart Gas Turbine Starter

The TCL SMARTStart system for gas turbine DC starter motors is designed to address the issue of aging starter systems which rely on electro-mechanical timers and DC contactors.

Over time and continued operation these electrical devices become unreliable causing:

Increased start fails

Reduced component life

Increased down time as spares are difficult to source; particularly those requiring 120V.dc operating voltages

Functions

The SMARTStart system includes an integrated micro-controller to provide:

Programmable current profile during start up

System diagnostics, to detect starter motor faults

Interface with the existing control system

via hardwired inputs & outputs

Serial communications interface, via Ethernet

System Design

In a traditional DC starter electro-mechanical contactors control the motor speed by switching resistors in and out. This causes high current peaks and mechanical stress during the start cycle.

The TCL SMARTStart system uses solid state components to control the current through the starter motor and provide a more progressive increase in the current). This soft start greatly reduces the stresses on the starter motor, increasing life and reliability.

To provide an operator interface with the equipment a HMI is mounted on the front panel, providing the following features:

Monitoring of system parameters

Adjustment of set-points, ramp rates, etc.

Graphical indication of motor current

Real time trending of motor current

Status of digital and analogue signals

Alarm indication

Viewing of PID loop

The SMARTStart system provides a reliable and cost effective solution for gas turbine DC starter systems, increasing starter motor life and improving system reliability.

Pulse Width Modulated Start Cycle

system reliability. Pulse Width Modulated Start Cycle Installation The SMARTStart system is assembled in a cubicle

Installation

The SMARTStart system is assembled in a cubicle sized 1,200x800 and is designed to occupy a smaller footprint than

the existing starter controls. The cubicle includes termination points for all field cables and can be installed in a floor or wall mounted position.

Design

The design is carried out by experienced electrical engineers. We are flexible in our approach allowing the client to determine the level of design input required from TCL. So the scope of the design can vary from a system layout based on the customer’s specification to a full design from scratch, including a site survey. The deliverables could therefore include:

A site survey at the customers facility

Production of a design specification

General arrangement drawings

Panel cut-out dimensional drawings

Parts lists (BOM).

Drawings are usually produced in AutoCAD format but other formats are available on request.

Manufacture and Test

Systems are manufactured at the TCL works by our skilled technicians. All work is controlled by procedures within our ISO 9001 quality control manual.

Components can be supplied by TCL or ‘free issued’ by the client. TCL have a comprehensive supplier network which enables us to procure components at very competitive prices.
