REDUCED ALARMS BY UP TO 80%

Better alarm management is simplified alarm management

In today’s operating environment, workers are increasingly on the go, and need robust, flexible alarm management software that provides the right information and tools when they need them. While GE’s ActivePoint* HMI provides a modern user interface for plant controls, our ActivePoint Alarm Rationalization software takes it one step further, helping to rationalize and categorize alarms so operators can get a simplified but complete picture of all areas of their plant, enabling quick identification and response to what matters. We have performed this upgrade for customers around the world, and every single one of our new gas turbines are shipped with this ActivePoint HMI alarm rationalization software, more than 100 units.

WHAT'S AT RISK

Stay organized, stay running

CS18914-01-ActivePoint-Alarm-Web-Graphic_R1

Proper categorization of alarms can help operators determine whether their attention is required or if an alarm has the potential to cause process impact.
Examples of process impact can include :

Loss of redundancy.

Loss of efficiency

Loss of plant output

Impending shutdown

Damage to equipment

Operation outside of regulatory compliance

ActivePoint Alarm Rationalization benefits

Improved operator awareness

By determining alarm priority, alarm rationalization tools can improve operator awareness and lead to simplified alarm handling, potentially reducing actionable alarms by as much as 80%. The easy-to-use interface puts you back in control.

SEE THE BENEFITS FOR YOURSELF

Improved power plant productivity

Role-based alarm management software and parent/child alarm grouping improves O&M staff productivity, and reduces response time to critical issues in your power plant. And with better diagnostic capability comes opportunities for education and a learning environment for the operator and plant staff.

SEE THE BENEFITS FOR YOURSELF

Simplified alarm handling

With the new alarm management strategy, users can easily access the details of the alarms presented in a screen via clicking the alarm icons. The operator can use this information to determine possible causes and next steps.

AIR FLOW SENSOR UPGRADE

We have the solution

We have worked with our customers to develop a new solution for measuring air flow without the risks of exposure to damaging elements: The Differential Pressure Transmitter (DPT). In an air flow sensor upgrade, your existing equipment will be replaced with our DPT, which is installed across the compartment ventilation fans. This upgrade substantially reduces the risk of incorrect low flow readings and increases the reliability of your units.

In addition to the DPT, your upgrade will include new control logic to avoid false trips. One optional, but recommended feature to consider as part of your DPT upgrade is a door limit switch to provide protection when the gas fuel module or turbine compartment door is opened while in operation.

SEE THE BENEFITS FOR YOURSELF

Increasing your unit’s
availability, reliability and performance

A DPT upgrade from GE will help improve your gas turbine fleet’s operational reliability. We have global expertise in DPT upgrades, and spare parts are easy to obtain if they are ever needed. Rather than wait for an unplanned outage, talk to GE about planning your DPT upgrade as part of your next planned outage.
