A power plant is a facility for the generation of electric power. It is also used to refer to the engine in ships, aircraft and other large vehicles. At the center of nearly all power stations is a generator, a rotating machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy by creating relative motion between a magnetic field and a conductor. The energy source harnessed to turn the generator varies widely.
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.
