Control technology for supercritical coal-fired plant in Indonesia

Ovation technology by Emerson Power Management is designed to unify boiler and turbine controls for improved plant stability, responsiveness and thermal efficiencies; tighter control of plant operations; and a clearer view of plant and turbine parameters.

Emerson Process Management will install its Ovation expert control system at a new 660-MW, supercritical power plant in Adipala, Indonesia, near the south shore of Cilacap in the Jawa Tengah Province. 

Expected to be commissioned in February 2013, this is the first supercritical plant to be built by China National Technical Import and Export Corporation.

Ovation technology will monitor and control the plant’s Babcock and Wilcox Beijing Co. Ltd. boiler and Shanghai Electric Corp. turbine. Unifying boiler and turbine controls provides improved plant stability, responsiveness and thermal efficiencies; tighter overall control of plant operations; and a clearer view of key plant and turbine parameters.

The Ovation system, which will manage approximately 11,000 I/O points, will also perform data acquisition and manage the plant’s modulating control system, sequence control system, furnace safety supervisory system, feedwater turbine control system and electrical control system, as well as the supervisory and plant management system. Emerson will supply a total of 19 Ovation controllers, nine workstations and its EDS enterprise visualization technology.
