Combustion optimization control

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”.​​

Our Control Solution 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.
