Improving Turbine Warming System Design for Greater Reliability and Operating Benefits

Turbine Warming Systems (TWS) are an effective means of reducing “Cold” startup times on Combined Cycle Steam Turbines. Reduced startup times result in much shorter “hold” times and allow faster ramp rates for higher MW output. Faster starts result in much shorter times to full load, thus increasing revenue and higher dispatch priority to match … More Improving Turbine Warming System Design for Greater Reliability and Operating Benefits
