Condenser Level Control in Coal-Fired Power Plants
Supercritical and Ultra-Supercritical plants are a vital part of global power generation. They operate above the critical pressure and temperature of water (3206.2 psia at 705°F), up to a maximum of 4350 psia and 1170°F. Since feed water is turned into steam as it travels through the boiler tubes, the startup system requires problem-free operation.
One of the most important parts of a power plant is the condenser. Drawn into the condenser, the steam is “condensed” back into water so it can be used repeatedly within the plant. Plants need reliable actuation to efficiently control the condenser application process and maintain maximum MW output.
