Power plants built 20 years ago weren't optimized to achieve the operational goals of today and physics and financial challenges of the near-future. So, how can we prepare?

Most power plants were built for running at baseload—but that’s not how they’re running today. As renewable energy sources become more of a presence on the grid, efficiency is now a priority for power plant operators, with the goal of staying online more economically and spending more time at part load.
OpFlex Variable IBH replaces fixed, conservative control schedules for IBH flow with modern logic using model-based control, resulting in improved part load heat rate. An online icing model is used to calculate the minimum IBH flow required to help ensure adequate icing margin for the given ambient temperature and dew point, and adjust IBH accordingly in real time.
Take a look at how OpFlex Load Flexibility can make your plant even better.
