The addition of non-conventional, renewable generation to the energy mix and the ongoing development of climate change protocols are having a significant impact on the operation of conventional fossil plants. Addressing limitations in flexible operation (cycling, ramp rates, load following, etc.) attributed to critical level controls with enhanced technologies can help ensure rapid response to market demands, while mitigating system stress, unit trips and other negative consequences on heat rate.
Donald Hite, development manager for the power industry at Magnetrol®, discusses the effects of advanced level control solutions on the evolving power generation sector in the informative webcast “Optimizing Level Control to Meet New Generation Demands.” In the free webcast, he discusses:
- Level Control Concerns for Steam Drums and Feedwater Heaters
- Effects on Ramp Rates and Cycling
- Cost of Heat Rate Deviation
- Eliminating Instrument-Induced Error
- Optimizing Performance
- Power Plant Efficiency Case Study
