Integrated Compressor & Turbine Control Systems
Multiple control options deliver superior control and protection
BHGE offers integrated turbine and compressor controls that deliver outstanding performance and exceptional value to our customers. The company’s engineers and technicians manufacture each of its gas turbines and compressors in our own factories so our customers can be assured of the perfection and integrity in every piece of machinery that rolls out of BHGE’s factories.
By comparison, our competitors have no onsite manufacturing facilities nor do they offer the expertise to design, manufacture and assemble rotating equipment to produce the best gas turbines and compressors that BHGE delivers to our customers every day.
BHGE owns, manages and maintains our control platform to deliver outstanding hardware, firmware and software solutions tailored to the unique requirements of each customer.
BHGE's Nexus Control System is designed to help plant operators improve their decision-making speed and accuracy when the plant fails to operate correctly under normal conditions. Nexus offers a unified software environment that can quickly and accurately change the application system logic that controls plant operations in real time, online. This capability optimizes uptime without the need to rely on the manufacturer.
Our premium centralized rack-based system supports even the largest and most complex turbines. Your ability to understand, control and protect your entire plant is critical to securing its greatest operating value, pulling every possible bit of efficiency, reliability, and availability from your assets. BHGE's intuitive digital Mark VIe Integrated Control System software gives you that power. Whether you’re controlling a single turbine or your entire plant, our original equipment manufacturer (OEM) expertise takes controls to new levels of performance, operability and flexibility.
Our team will design, install and commission generator control and protection products, including excitation, static start and generator protection systems. Broad domain expertise in modernizing excitation applications includes brushless, static and compound systems on gas, steam, hydro and nuclear turbine generators from a wide variety of global manufacturers. Excitation and starter upgrades can be provided as standalone projects or combined with our turbine and plant controls, HMI and cybersecurity products to provide a fully-integrated retrofit solution.
BHGE's electromechanical solutions are critical to a control system's migration or a full panel retrofit. Users are urged to consider integration requirements based on the control system’s age and its interface with software and electromechanical components. BHGE offers expertise and OEM knowledge to evaluate these needs and ensure that assets remain reliable. Our solutions can enhance performance, online capability, provide redundancy and fit within the current operations envelope.
Drawing on more than 25 years of accumulated domain knowledge in turbine and compressor controls in gas processing and pipelines, our OptiComp™ Integrated Compressor Control Suite offers a comprehensive and scalable solution with superior control software running on BHGE's fast and reliable Mark™ VIe control platform. We can extend control and protective functions for equipment beyond the basic machine train, such as associated auxiliaries up to and including the entire compressor station. Bently Nevada's Compressor Control Suite leverages the 3500 series.
BHGE turboexpander-compressors are used industry-wide for reliable refrigeration service and high plant energy efficiency. We provide the frame sizes, capacities, footprints and weights to match virtually any application. With more than 60 years’ experience, our global installed base includes the industry’s first turboexpander-compressor used for GTL, first NACE-compliant active magnetic bearings (AMB), and the first AMB installed on an FPSO.
BHGE's Human Machine Interface (HMI) supports a more efficient and productive control system and unit performance. HMIs offer a window into your operations, providing the intelligence that operators and maintenance technicians need to maintain and improve the productivity of the plant’s assets.
