Abstract

Established techniques have been applied for modeling a once-through subcritical steam generator in an oil-fired 86 MW(e) power generation system. The model was used to design a fuel controller which was implemented in the actual plant. The resulting minimum stable operating level of the system has been 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 approximaely 2 MW/min to 9 MW/min.
