GE’s LS2100e Static Starter is a load-commutated inverter (LCI) available in four power ratings: 8.5, 11, 14, and 22 MVA, matching the starting requirements of the largest gas turbine in the world.
As a member of the GE Mark* VIe Controls Technology family, the LS2100e communicates peer-to-peer on the Mark VIe UDH network to reduce field wiring and to improve data coordination between the starter, Ex2100e exciter, and Mark VIe turbine controller.
ControlST* is the common configuration tool for the GE Mark VIe controller family including LS2100e static starter. GE’s HMI systems utilize common operator stations and engineer workstations to simplify plant operations and maintenance.
To save capital costs, GE’s static starter can be configured to start more than one turbine. This provides starting flexibility and choices between starting redundancy and cost savings. LS2100e can be applied as part of a new unit gas turbine installation, either as a replacement of any vintage of existing GE static starter or as a controls migration for the Innovation Series.
Configuration options include:
