North Dakota Utility - SNCR and SCR Systems Emissions Controls Upgrade
Fall 2018 - Summer 2019
Utility contracted Enthalpy Energy Services to perform Electrical and Instrumentation & Controls Testing on their Unit 1 SCR, and Units 2 & 3 SNCR systems, as well as upgraded water treatment system. The Unit 1 work includes new induced draft (ID) fans and unit aux transformers (UAT’s). Electrical testing includes complete point to point testing of electrical cabling, troubleshooting MCC starter buckets, megger testing of motor windings, cables, and low voltage busses, voltage testing, loop checks of electrical equipment into the DCS, energizing low and medium voltage electrical equipment, as well as troubleshooting protective relays, CTs, PTs, surge arresters, bushings, and power transformers. Instrumentation and Control testing includes: Field calibrating instrumentation, assistance energizing equipment, performing functional loop checks of instrumentation into the DCS, assisting in the startup & functional testing of process systems, and completing documentation to be used in the commissioning turnover books, among other duties.
Heat Rate Testing
Arizona Utility - Two (2) Conventional Coal-Fired Generating Stations
Spring 2018 & 2019
Enthalpy Energy Services performed heat rate testing for Utility at two (2) different Stations. The goal of this testing was to determine unit heat rate at three (3) load conditions. Data was collected from the plant DCS, flue gas traverses at the air heater gas inlet, and a composite grid at the air heater outlet. This data was used to calculate unit output and efficiency in order to obtain a unit heat input. The measured gross power generated was used with the input value to develop a value for BTU/kwh. Recommendations for optimization were provided upon completion of the testing, data reduction, and final report.
