The GE Turbine Mark family of controllers are one of the most trusted and widely used in the world. Traditionally the information and feedback available from these systems has been limited. Integration has been restricted to hardwire or Modbus systems, with inherent limitations on speed, scalability and accuracy.
The GE Turbines OPC Server from MatrikonOPC is standard off-the-shelf software that provides secure and reliable integration with the GE Turbine Control System. With the GE Turbine OPC Server, users can communicate to a variety of GE Turbine Controllers such as Mark V, Mark VI, Mark Vie, Mark V LM, Mark V B… etc. MODBUS is no longer the preferred method of communicating with GE turbine controllers. The GE Turbines OPC Server offers the easiest way to deliver high speed Ethernet connectivity, redundancy, alarms (with millisecond timestamp accuracy) – for any other 3rd party OPC compliant DCSs/historians.
Design challenges are inherent to these more sophisticated architectures which are often beyond the knowledge of most end users. Join Eldin Dickinson as he discusses the advantages and challenges of working with GE Turbines systems, and the tricks and tips you need to know when working with these architectures.
This presentation will offer key takeaways including:
- A clear, high-level understanding of the OPC technologies available for GE Turbine integration;
- The benefits of OPC integration versus traditional methods;
- The challenges in an advanced architecture;
- Tips needed for a successful project.
Easy to understand yet full of relevant detail – this concise presentation will arm everyone from engineers to vendors and business decision makers with the knowledge they need to evaluate the value of using OPC technology.
