A reliable starter delivers a key element in the profitable operation of heavy-duty gas turbines. That’s why we provide a variety of system retrofits and upgrades to improve starting reliability of existing Innovation Series Control or LS2100 static starters.
The LS2100e Static Starter is the third generation of load commutated inverter (LCI) drives for static starting applications and provides improved performance, protection, and flexible operational profiles for stand-alone or redundant cross-over configuration.
Available as either a full drive or a Controls Migration (digital front end), upgraded LS2100e controls offer new operability and performance features, and can support enhanced starting profiles and improved plant performance. Systems relying on a single static starter can be redesigned to include a second starter to provide a fully-redundant starting system for single or multiple gas turbines.
We deliver a total scope LCI cross-over system, including medium and low voltage system design, safety interlocking, network design, software development, Engineering Design Package, and installation and commissioning support.
When installed with Mark VIe unit controls, the system provides an integrated software environment with common programming and engineering tools, consolidated HMI, alarm management and historian, and start sequencing (without the need for external PLC cross-over control), all on the same control system platform and product lifecycle.
