For plants with multiple gas turbines, a second generation integrated plant condition monitoring and control system combines prime mover and driven load controls with process controls for the balance of plant. Projected applications include electric power generation, cogeneration, combined cycle plants, and gas compression plants. The system offers redundant distributed control, with diagnostics, repair, and return to original fault tolerance levels. This forms the basis for projections of high control availability. Two data highways drastically reduce plant wiring while improving availability of communications. Color graphic plots of any parameter can be displayed, along with analysis of the condition of the plant components. The system can interface with dispatching telemetery systems.
