Optimize Maintenance and Improve Life

HRSGs are now required to endure significant cyclic and long-term high temperature operation, which can result in fatigue and creep damage to certain components, which can ultimately lead to cracking and failure. Certain events such as rapid cooling, improper drain operation, low load operation or inadequate maintenance can produce significant temperature differentials and very high thermal stresses that are not detectable with normal plant DCS instrumentation. The HRSG Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics Service provides a significant value to the plant owner, delivering information that can be used to improve the life expectancy of an HRSG, or optimize the maintenance program.

Benefits

  • Operation:
    • Trade-off opportunities against lifetime
  • Maintenance:
    • Optimize outage scope (set priorities)
    • Highlighting abnormal operation
    • Input for Root Cause Analysis

For Reliable HRSG Operation After a Performance Upgrade of the Gas Turbine

Combined-cycle power plant operators typically implement several gas turbine performance upgrades over the lifecycle of the plant.

A gas turbine upgrade can:

  • Push components outside of ASME Code Compliance (design pressure, design temperature, safety valve capacity)
  • Cause non-pressure part materials to operate above design temperatures
  • Impact current operation and future reliability of DESHs, valves, and instrumentation

In an HRSG gas turbine upgrade study, GE reviews the different areas of the HRSG that could be impacted by the changes at the HRSG inlet. Where needed, measures will be proposed to address any safety, reliability, lifetime, code compliance, or performance impacts.

Benefits

  • Continued safe and reliable operation after the GT performance upgrade

Reliable Operation Under Various Operation Conditions

Optimized Operation to Maximize Revenue

HRSGs are subject to cyclic operation as well as periods of operation at high load, resulting in fatigue and creep damage accumulation in key pressure parts. Because HRSG life expectancy is affected by the operation profile of the combined-cycle power plant, it is important to understand how these start/stop cycles (as well as prolonged periods of high load operation) impact component and system life.

GE can provide HRSG life assessments to help you determine critical components and operating practices, take action to prevent costly failures, improve reliability, and optimize HRSG lifetime in relation to other plant components.

Benefits

  • Lifetime management for enhanced longevity and reliability
  • Optimization of inspection scope based on knowledge of critical components
  • Change to more flexible operation
