Steam Balance Control for Optimised Power Facilities

Steam balance control is a control structure that is taking care of the difference between steam production and consumption. The purpose is to keep the steam pressures stable on different steam headers and to prevent stress on the equipment. The control structure connects the boilers, turbines, reduction stations, consumers, and auxiliary components. The factory requirements for the steam quality have increased, for example, web speed has increased and paper quality requirements are higher. Earlier with stand-alone-controllers, it was difficult to accomplish a Steam Balance Control System. Nowadays, with modern automation systems, experts have tools to create an optimal Steam Balance Control System.
