TP-Plus™ CIM is a unique software product designed and developed for advanced cycle isolation and secondary cycle leakage predictions. This is a valuable tool for any thermal performance program to quantify generation, efficiency and cycle flow lost from valve problems.
Generating plants often suffer from power loses due to leakages through valves that are faulty and/or do not seat correctly. Often these losses are significant and are difficult to quantify. With TP-Plus™ CIM, plant personnel can quickly detect AND quantify leakage losses (in MWe & Btus!) in a plant cycle.
The software takes inputs from a plant walkdown or directly from the plant computer. These inputs are used by TP-Plus™ CIM to estimate the leakage flow which is used to calculate megawatt or heat rate effects.
Benefits of TP-PLUS™ CIM
- Identify faulty valves.
- Establish a cycle isolation performance monitoring program.
- Recover lost megawatts and heat rate degradation.
- Reduce elapsed time between the start of a valve leakage and the correction of the problem.
