Fossil Fuel Boilers
Gas, Liquid, Coal (PC or CFBB)

Fossil Fuel Boilers

TGPS has conducted the thermal performance evaluation of fired boilers around the world.

Either in a coal power plant performance test or in liquid or gas fuel boiler test. We have experience with different boiler technologies such as Circulating Fluidized Bed Boilers, Pulverized Coal, Heavy Fuel Oil or Gas Fuel Boilers.

The evaluation of the performance of a boiler involves doing an entire analysis of the heat and energy balance around the boiler. For example, in a coal power plant performance test, there is the need to use a lot of additional instrumentation to ensure that the indirect method of evaluating fuel consumption is accurate.

 

Compliance with the applicable international performance test codes such as:

Combined Cycles

Combined Cycles

TGPS has conducted combined cycle performance tests of over 100 power plants around the world. We have developed test programs for various installations and construction scenarios: 1X1, 2X1, 3X1, and other configurations. We have arranged testing for 1, 2 or even 3-phase projects, where the final combined cycle plant was not installed at the same time: first the simple cycle, then the steam turbine and finally BOP and export steam elements.

Our team is ready to provide the most technically accurate test procedure and to manage the combined cycle performance test execution so that you, and all stakeholders, are confident the test results will be 100% accurate.

Cogeneration Plants

Cogeneration Plants

The current power generation markets place big challenges to generating companies to increase the efficiency and to maximize the revenue while improving its operating costs. For this reason, cogeneration technologies play an key role on keeping the operating of power plants efficiently. For many CH&P plants have been a favorite technology where the steam or hot water is used by external customers in their processes.

TGPS has been involved in the acceptance testing and diagnostic of multiple CH&P installations around the world. The key is to analyze the performance of the electricity generation while understanding the impact of the bottoming cycle in the export of steam and/or hot water. Our team is ready to apply this experience around the globe at any time.

Gas Turbines

Gas Turbines

TGPS has conducted several dozens of gas turbine performance test around the world. Our thermal performance engineers have conducted gas turbine performance tests of different OEMs such as GE, Alstom, Pratt & Whitney, Ansaldo, Siemens, Rolls Royce and Mitsubishi, among others.

Our performance testing company strictly follows the ASME PTC 22, ISO and DIN test protocols.

The gas turbine performance tests have involved different models of gas turbines, from 30 year old frame 5 units to the latest H-Class gas turbines. Our team of engineers is ready to work in project around the world and bring the instrumentation required to conduct an accurate and reliable test.

In addition to the evaluation overall gas turbine performance, TGPS evaluates in detail other parameters during a gas turbine performance test, such as gas turbine compressor efficiency, gas turbine combustion temperature and gas turbine efficiency.

Concentrated Solar Power

Concentrated Solar Power

The power generation industry is in constant development, the renewable energy technologies are making a significant impact not only in the environment but in the way power generation companies decide the investment in new projects. One particular technology that has the potential to evolve into a primary source of electricity is the concentrated solar power. The main reason is that it removes the fluctuations in energy production that other renewable energy projects lack. Concentrated solar power plants can produce electricity 24hrs a day and regulate their production. Currently there is a major trend of new CSP projects around the world. TGPS has conducted the acceptance performance test of one of the major CSP projects in United States. Together with our thermal modeling services our company can optimization the steam production cycles for CSP projects.
