Intelligent optimization of fossil fired steam generators
EUcontrol is in operation since January 2008 in our 600 MW Unit G, since February 2010 in our 600 MW Unit H and since September 2014 in our 1000 MW Unit K. We are convinced that EUcontrol is a powerful tool for monitoring and optimizing boiler operation.
The overall performance and availability of a fossil-fired thermal power plant is predominantly affected by the steam generating unit. Even though conventional plant DCS/PLC control ensures sufficiently safe and reliable operation, it neither rigorously optimizes the boiler control settings nor does it take care of special combustion problems. Not to mention that much of the information gathered by modern IT systems and advanced monitoring equipment remains untapped. Facing growing technical, environmental and commercial challenges, plant operators can avoid substantial investments by unearthing these “hidden reserves”.
EUcontrol extracts available system information and uses it for intelligent control and optimization objectives: Increasing combustion efficiency, lowering emissions and reducing slagging/fouling tendencies in fossil-fired steam generators.
