The new plants that are coming online today are already designed for fast start and flexible operations. With the changing generation mix, being able to move a unit is essential as fleets dispatch more renewables. But what about older plants that were designed to operate as baseload generation?
Sometimes units must be mechanically retrofitted to be able to better participate in the market, but sometimes it may just require some targeted automation improvements. So where should utilities start?
At the December 5-7 POWER-GEN 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at booth #5314, Emerson will be showcasing targeted solutions that help utilities better move units in today’s dynamic power market. Jeff Williams will be presenting a paper on Tuesday, December 5th at 1:30 pm titled “Use of Novel Automated Plant Procedure Integration Technology To Save Start-Up Time And Fuel Use“. Please plan on attending Jeff’s session.
Join us to learn more and request a complimentary exhibit pass for the conference.
