Burner Management System – Gas Power Plant. The multi-fuel Thermal Power Plant can use natural gas or blast furnace gas. The total production capacity of the 3 blocks is 480MW electricity, 160MW each one. The power plant was designed to keep the pilot burner always on, even when the main burner was in use. The scope of the work was the engineering, the supply and the commissioning of a new combustion system, including instruments, piping, and control.
Our combustion system switches off the pilot burner when the main burner is on. To ensure the plant safety for each burner, we installed two UV flame detectors and two burner control units, in order to get a redundant detection system. The logic on existing DCS has been modified according to the new functionality. All activities were executed during the shutdown maintenance plan, without further power plant stoppages.
