Leading Aftermarket Service Provider for Multi-Platform OEM Gas Turbine Power Plants Worldwide

Monitoring & Diagnostics

Engineers at the Monitoring Center in our PSM headquarters monitor turbines and overall plant performance 24/7 as part of Long Term Agreements and other key installations. We use state-of-the-art technology and real-time data from the plants to track key performance indicators, provide early warnings of potential issues, analyze causes and recommend solutions for both immediate fixes and long-term improvement.

 

The PSM Monitoring Center is built on a global technology framework that is proven, secure and widely deployed. An affiliated facility  provides full backup monitoring support in the case of hurricanes and other emergency situations. The data collected at the Monitoring Center allows PSM to track the history of parts and provides the information required for long term planning.

AutoTune

Automated GT Combustion Tuning

PSM’s AutoTune system enables automated combustion tuning to maintain emissions and combustion dynamics within specified limits under varying ambient conditions (temperature and humidity), engine deterioration or while using a range of natural gas or liquefied natural gas.

Optimize Unit Operation

The AutoTune system incorporates features which result in optimal operation from a power and heat rate standpoint. The result is improved emissions control, hardware life, reliability and operability.

Optional Software Components

Fuel gas temperature optimization, Power+ for maximum power, and optimization for LNG are all options for allowing optimal power and increasing hardware life.
