Today’s challenge for operators

Surviving and responding to power grid transients—to help ensure reliable operations and a stable revenue stream

In addition to being sometimes required by global grid codes, protecting your plant against grid instability can also provide plant owners and operators new sources of revenue, as ancillary service industries evolve to backstop increased use of intermittent renewables.

ETS features and benefits

ETS includes:

  • Dynamic adjustment of machine response rate for rapid frequency or load transients
  • Transient fuel-air control to stabilize the combustor and reduce risk of lean blowout (LBO) trips during grid excursions by increasing the LBO margin
  • Redesigned automatic pre-select load control to maintain droop response

This gives you:

  • More robust droop response to adjust plant output to accommodate grid frequency fluctuations and comply with area regulations
  • Improved capability to survive grid instabilities and remain online, available to help deliver power
