Steam Turbine Perfomance Test – PTC 6

Steam Turbine Performance Test - PTC 6

TGPS has conducted the thermal performance evaluation of steam turbines around the world. Among the brands of steam turbines evaluated are GE, Alstom, Siemens, Mitsubishi and Skoda among others. Our company has conducted the performance evaluation of power plants around the world. TGPS strictly follows the ASME PTC6 test protocol.


Our company has in stock large amounts of high-precision testing instrumentation to measure the main parameters around the steam turbine.


The typical parameters of interest to calculate for contractual purposes are:


  • Corrected Steam Turbine Power Output
  • Corrected Steam Turbine Heat Rate / Efficiency


In addition TGPS has developed calculation tools to determine the following parameters in a steam turbine.


  • Turbine Efficiency
  • Heathers Efficiency
  • Condenser Performance


Recently, several customers have been interested to understand better the start-up and shutdown costs of their units. TGPS has helped to determine these values in power plants around the world.


Using all this information, our customers can take smart decisions for investment and maintenance purposes.


The typical test that TGPS conducts in Steam Turbines are:


  • Contractual Acceptance Performance Test (New Units / Upgrades)
  • Government Power Plant Performance Evaluation Programs
  • Power Plant Diagnostic Performance Test
  • Periodic Power Plant Performance Test
  • Before and After Performance Test
  • Start-Up and Shutdown Test


In addition to the above tests, TGPS can conduct the acoustic test on steam turbines.
