Abstract

To design an improved fuel controller for an operating, 386 MW(e), oil-fired power generation system, a mathematical model of the plant was developed from fundamental principles to predict thermal-hydraulic transients. This controller was successfully implemented in the actual plant by replacing a portion of the original control system. The resulting minimum operating level of the system was thus reduced from 220 MW(e) to flash tank level of 130 MW(e), and the customary load rate of change during normal operation improved from approximately 2 MW/min to 9 MW/min.
