Power Plant Optimization suite of systems enables power generators to monitor and predict plant performance, schedule the most economical operation for each generation unit, optimize the combustion process & reduce emissions and improve data access & lower the costs of maintenance. One of the key elements of power plant optimization is a steam balance optimization between plural steam turbines.
Power pump is a positive displacement pump of the reciprocating type operated through cranks and connecting rods by power supplied to the crankshaft. The source of power is usually an electric motor, which may be connected to shaft through gears or by a belt and pulley. The latter is more quite. The direct-acting steam pump is inherently a variable speed pump. The power pump is inherently a constant speed pump and is thus not so well suited to a variable rate of discharge.
