Overview

Thoroughly train new hires in the proper operation and management of your plant’s systems

Plant Control Systems - DCS

When hiring new plant operators, it is essential to thoroughly train new hires in the proper operation and management of your plant’s systems. At BHGE, we train new engineers by simulating “what-if” scenarios that include existing machinery and new installations so new hires can understand and accurately model the interactions.

Our simulation capabilities support these types of scenarios and provide a safe training environment for new hires. The test environment enables users to review critical changes before applying an actual scenario within an operational facility.

These tools allow users to perform a root cause analysis, troubleshoot a problem when needed, create platforms that optimize the parameters of a specific process, and reduce the amount of time for a new plant to commission its control system.

Solutions

Mark VIe Control System Simulation

BHGE brings more than 50 years of expertise in intelligent turbine design and control, offering deep domain knowledge of the specific turbines at your site. We offer our customers reliable virtual controller software that creates a safe environment to train and test your control system’s modifications, making your operations and maintenance processes more effective. As well, our virtual controller delivers an accurate and easy-to-maintain simulator that only an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) can provide.

The Virtual Controller (VC) for our Mark VI and Mark VIe safely simulates your control system’s responses with no risk to an actively functioning power plant. Our Application Programming Interface (API) integrates with the VC’s overall plant simulator, while its turbine control simulation and associated HMI demonstrate an exceptional high-fidelity system for test validation, installation support, operator and maintenance training, and ongoing change management.

Our Mark VI and Mark Vie Virtual Controller offers these benefits to our customers:

  • Gives operators a safe training environment to explore optimized operations
  • Offers a test environment to review changes without altering operating plant dynamics
  • Saves and restores a simulation’s original conditions so the virtual controller can shift to an alternate scenario without having to maneuver or reboot the simulation
  • Supports scenario-based training for technicians to learn troubleshooting and repair techniques with BHGE controls
  • Reduces a control system’s commissioning time for new plants

 

Nexus Control System Simulation

The Nexus Control System Simulation gives plant engineers and operators a critical tool that boosts an operation’s efficiency and effectiveness.

The Nexus simulation tests logic, engineering and maintenance training and adjusts operating parameters and system validation testing without jeopardizing a plant’s normal operations. Its high fidelity simulation fully integrates with the controls software.

Our customers understand and appreciate the benefits of a Nexus simulation:

  • Provides operators a safe environment for training     
  • Offers a test environment to review changes without altering operating plant dynamics
  • Supplies tools that troubleshoot and perform root cause analyses
  • Creates a platform that optimizes process parameters
  • Reduces a control system’s commissioning time for new plants
