Boiler steams ahead
Optimized quickly and easily
DasyLab tool simplifies boiler commissioning and optimization. In the operation of modern boiler plants enormous demands are made in terms of the safety engineering and on the economic use of the fuel. With DasyLab, the commissioning tool for SIMATIC, the process data can be recorded via the open and closed-loop controllers and their parameters optimized quickly and easily.
The product range of STANDARDKESSEL, the leading constructor of industrial boilers, includes large volume boilers with steam generating capacities of over 200 tons per hour, but also waste-heat boilers at every level of output that are manufactured with or without additional firing mainly for industrial and combined-cycle power plants. While smaller systems are usually equipped with conventional contactor controllers, the larger systems such as those in industrial power generation plants use SIMATIC S5 controllers. The often very complex relationships between fuel use, air volume and load are optimally balanced with one another using SIPART DR 24 controllers.
Presetting reduces costs
The time spent commissioning such plants on site at the customer premises represents a cost factor that it is essential to minimize. For this reason, the open and closed-loop controllers are preset prior to shipment of the components. By simulating and preconfiguring the control loops with DasyLab, the system optimization work required on site is reduced to a minimum. The program permits the visualization of the processes and allows access to all essential system parameters. The recorded data can be stored in realtime and evaluated graphically. This enables unstable control loops or faults in the
control sequence to be readily detected, even at the simulation stage.
