Simulators to Have Extra Effective Training

What it offers

This high-tech training simulator solution utilizes real-time scenarios as an real power plant. The system can be adapted to create different fault scenarios to understand how the thermodynamic & electrical processes behave during transient conditions, thus giving the operator a chance to learn how to face actual challenges during power plant operations. This training simulator offers excellent opportunities such as:

  • Keeping the operator’s skill at its maximum level
  • Analysis of plant’s reaction to a critical situation
  • Learning effective trouble-shooting due to the possibility of safe reconstruction of critical plant situations
  • Learning to form a better basis to make decisions due to manifold test features

The general simulator is based on a 2-2-1 layout of a combined cycle power plant and includes the following plant systems and components:

  • 2  large scale gas turbines and related systems
  • 2 double pressure level HRSGs, duct firing
  • An E type steam turbine (Siemens Technology) and steam systems(HP, LP, extraction, auxiliary and turbine seal steam)
  • Condensate and feedwater Systems
  • Water circulation systems
  • Both ACC (Air Cooled Condenser) and Heller cooling system and auxiliaries
  • Fuel Systems
  • Steam and gas generator
  • Electrical distribution
  • Unit protection system
  • Siemens control system for governor, protection, DCS(Teleperm-XP),BMS

The simulator has been completely developed based on ISA 77.20.2012 standard which is the most comprehensive reference for development of fossil fuel power plant simulators.

Operating Capabilities

The overall capabilities of the generic OTS in terms of operation are represented by the following ICs:

  • Cold Start
  • Warm start
  • Hot Start
  • 100% Load

The overall capabilities of the plant specific simulator in terms of operation are represented by the following transient conditions:

  • Start-up from cold state to full load (100%)
  • Start-up from warm standby to full load (100%)
  • Start-up from hot standby to full load (100%)
  • Shut down from load to hot standby or cold state
  • Configuration changes of major plant components (e.g. feed pumps)
  • Load changes with different gradients according plant DCS
  • Different unit trip scenarios
  • Loss of vacuum
  • Loss of load (Load Rejection)
  • Turbine trip signal blocked and boiler trips
  • Feed-Water system oscillation
