GE’s High Load Premix Transfer (HLPT) software package can improve a customer’s operational flexibility by enhancing turbine performance during combustion mode changes for GE’s MS7001EA and MS5002 gas turbines in mechanical drive applications. Installing the HLPT package reduces the time associated with combustion mode transfers allowing customers to operate with a lower emissions profile.
Installing GE's High Load Premix Transfer (HLPT) software package on GE's MS7001EA and MS5002 gas turbines enables the transfer of combustion modes in two minutes at base load. The HLPT software package reduces NOx emissions by 1 metric ton per year per turbine by reducing the time spent in a combustion mode with increased emissions. This is equivalent to the annual NOx emissions of nearly 120 cars on US roads. If GE applied the HLPT software package to 20 GE gas turbines, this could avoid approximately 20 metric tons of NOx emissions per year across GE customers, equivalent to the annual NOx emissions of nearly 2,400 cars on US roads. In addition the HLPT software package can lead to reduced gas flaring of the process compressor, avoiding over 55 metric tons of CO2 emissions per turbine per year.
