Steam Turbine Perfomance Test

TGPS has conducted hundreds of performance tests of steam turbines all over the world.

We have tested steam turbines manufactured by GE, Alstom, Siemens, Westinghouse, Mitsubishi and Skoda among others. Our company has conducted the performance evaluation of power plants around the world. We are experts of the ASME PTC-6 test protocol.

TGPS owns a large amount of high-precision testing instrumentation to measure the main parameters around the steam turbine, in accordance with ASME PTC-6.

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
  • Turbine Steam Rate

  • 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.
