The Gas Turbine Control Application (GTCA) designed and developed by Control-Care Systems provides a versatile and cost-effective way to control an industrial or aero-derivative gas turbine. In addition to controlling speed or power, it also protects against excessive temperatures, speeds or pressures, and sequences the fuel flow during startups and shutdowns. The GTCA is offered for single and/or multi-shaft turbines driving variable-speed loads or synchronous generators. Their redundant inputs, contingency strategies and redundancy capabilities characterize an innovative, more cost-effective approach to fault tolerance than was previously available for these type of machinery.
Upgrading many gas turbines’ control systems often comprises upgrading fuel systems valves, pumps, and related equipment. Sometimes fuel systems are also added in fuel conversion projects to add dual fuel capability on a turbine previously operating on a single fuel. Control-Care Systems provides you with complete fuel system design compatible with the control system and turnkey installation. The GTCA and its fuel system are available for new and retrofit applications and can be configured to control your gas turbine in accordance with turbine manufacturer provisions.
Our GTCA application will effectively protect and control your gas turbine during start-up conditions as well as during (ab)normal operation with minimal operator intervention.
