Woodward offers a wide variety of controllers for the synchronization and load share market. Our basic controllers provide standard features for parallel or load share applications which are easy to set up and use.
If you need to handle more complex load flows, or even protection schemes, Woodward offers you products with integrated protection features and communication interfaces to your SCADA(Supervisory Control Logic Control) system. You can eliminate programming effort in your PLC(Programmable Logic Control) by sending our control a run or stop command. They will take care of the synchronization and load share sequencing across Generator, Mains-and Tie Breakers.
Woodward offers you decades of experience in connecting and load balancing power generation sources and distribution systems, so use products and feel safe.
Woodward’s NEW IEC61508 SIL-3 certified ProTech® safety and machinery protection platform leverages decades of pedigree and is designed to meet API specifications.
The platform ranges from the simplex version (ProTech-SX) to a full TMR based control that also monitors up to 10 different machinery sensors/devices (ProTech TPS) to provide a full blanket of protection for your equipment. The new platform leverages decades of experience from Woodward’s protech 3 platform . Many improvements to the platform make it easier to use, maintain, customize, and standardize. In addition, security functionality is implemented to meet the markets new Cyber Security requirements.
Woodward’s configurable and programmable digital steam turbine control platforms offer simplex, duplex, and TMR options that incorporate proven software and hardware, backed by decades of experience.
Woodward offers the largest selection of standard off-the-shelf steam turbine controllers in the market to address today’s cost pressures, without sacrificing performance or reliability. These controls are designed for any size industrial steam turbines, and require minimum engineering time to configure to a specific application. The software has been refined and proven in thousands of applications.
Fully programmable control platforms allow turbine OEMs or Woodward’s channel partners to create a custom controller with site specific algorithms, logic, and protection functionality as required by the application. Utilizing Woodward’s GAP (Graphical Application Programming) environment, control engineers are able to create the required applications utilizing proven algorithms tailored for turbine control and Woodward’s hardware.
This software flexibility, along with the simulation environment (Netsim), allows users to test and evaluate a wide range of scenarios before installing the software. The flexibility reduces commissioning time at site, potential for unexpected onsite changes, and safety issues.
Engine manufacturers and users depend on Woodward hydraulic-mechanical governors to provide reliable and precise control of engine speed and output in virtually every type of engine application. Available in work output ratings from 10.8 inch-pounds up to 500 foot-pounds, Woodward governors are used in power generation, marine, pump, compression, and vehicle applications.
Woodward steam turbine actuation platforms are designed for low-pressure or high-pressure servo systems and redundancy for high reliability.
Steam turbine OEMs have long used Woodward steam turbine valve based actuators on their turbine packages due to their high accuracy, fast response times, and long term reliability. Platforms range from self-contained pump/servo systems, to electric actuation, to servo position controllers. These platforms are specifically designed for steam turbine applications and provide proven reliable operation.
