Optimizing Heat Recovery Steam Generator Drains

This project will assess the viability of a smaller and less-expensive alternative to the level sensing drain pot for controlling HPSH and RH drains during all startup conditions. Benefits: Minimize thermal-mechanical fatigue damage during startups. Avoid overheating of drains system and flas tank by eliminating excessive steam discharge through the HRSG drain system. Improve startup...
