Gas Turbine Control Application (GTCA)

The Gas Turbine Control Application (GTCA) designed and developed by Control-Care Systems provides a versatile and cost-effective way to control an industrial or aero-derivative gas turbine. In addition to controlling speed or power, it also protects against excessive temperatures, speeds or pressures, and sequences the fuel flow during startups and shutdowns. The GTCA is offered for single and/or multi-shaft turbines driving variable-speed loads or synchronous generators. Their redundant inputs, contingency strategies and redundancy capabilities characterize an innovative, more cost-effective approach to fault tolerance than was previously available for these type of machinery.

 

Upgrading many gas turbines’ control systems often comprises upgrading fuel systems valves, pumps, and related equipment. Sometimes fuel systems are also added in fuel conversion projects to add dual fuel capability on a turbine previously operating on a single fuel. Control-Care Systems provides you with complete fuel system design compatible with the control system and turnkey installation. The GTCA and its fuel system are available for new and retrofit applications and can be configured to control your gas turbine in accordance with turbine manufacturer provisions.

Additional multi-purpose control loops can be configured using Control-Care Systems PID multi-loop module to protect any additional process parameter as well as redundant configurations are available.

 

Our GTCA is completely configurable to any industrial gas turbine and is usually integrated into the train control system or ITTC. It is fully compatible with our Antisurge Control Application (ACA), Unit Control Application (UCA) and Station Control Application (SCA). This integration results in increased train control system availability and reliability as well as in reduced system cost, because dedicated speed control processor, rack and power supply are not required.

 

Our GTCA application will effectively protect and control your gas turbine during start-up conditions as well as during (ab)normal operation with minimal operator intervention.
