Performance Training

Environmental & Instrumentation

TGPS has developed complementary skills to meet rigorous testing schedules, costs, and protocols around the world.

Environmental & Instrumentation

Our team helps power generation companies to measure, monitor, and optimize performance of the following types of power plants:

Types of Performance Testing

Compliance with ASME, IEC, AGA Codes

Contractual Testing

Validate the contractual guarantees of new projects and plant or equipment upgrades

Parameters to evaluate

Guaranteed parameters, such as: Power Output, Heat Rate, equipment efficiency, among others. This applies also to LTSA, and O&M contracts.

Main Goal

Protect the interest of the client to ensure accurate evaluation of the contractual guarantees.

TGPS Roles

Conducting or supervising the performance test for the owner of EPC.

Grid Code Testing

Determine the characteristics of the plant for the grid operator to use in the economic dispatch of the plant.

Parameters to evaluate

Heat consumption curves at full load range, capacity testing, minimum load, startup and shutdown costs

Main Goal

Map the performance of the plant

TGPS Roles

Conducting or witnessing the testing program

Emissions Testing

Emissions Testing

TGPS provides the services to measure the emissions in the exhaust gases of power plants. Our company has a substantial inventory of portable emissions equipment certified and ready to go to site anytime, anywhere.

We follow the applicable ASME and EPA protocols. For international sites we comply with the local environmental regulations.

Some of the most typical parameters are:

  • O2 content
  • NOx ppm
  • SOx ppm
  • CO & CO2 content
  • Others

Acoustic Testing

Acoustic Testing

We have conducted acoustics tests of power plants in multiple sites around the world in accordance with the international and local regulations. The purpose of our services is to compare the noise levels to the contractual guarantees.

Our company gets involved in the development of site-specific acoustic testing procedures; the execution of testing and the preparation of the reports.

The most typical tests that we conduct are:

  • Near-field
  • Far-field

High-Precision Instrument Rental

High-Precision Instrument Rental

TGPS holds a large quantity of testing instrumentation, calibrated and certified (NIST-traceable) in 4 different warehouses located in Canada, Mexico, Ukraine and Saudi Arabia.

The instrumentation we rent reduces the uncertainty levels in the measurement of electrical power, pressure, temperature, differential pressure, humidity and ambient pressure. We provide the data acquisition system (DAQ) and the setup of the equipment on site.
