Nidec Industrial Solutions responded with a starter system that would respond rapidly, efficiently and reliably to load changes at the gas-powered power station. Designed to enable the turbine to ramp up or down quickly, the new starter improves the turbine performance while also minimizing fuel consumption.
To minimize installation time and costs, Nidec Industrial Solutions’s solution was engineered to fit within the power station’s existing footprint – and without modifying its existing layout. The driver, cabling and other starter components were configured in a compact, modular container that Nidec Industrial Solutions engineered to fit into the only space available on the site’s footprint.
Because the complete system could be built and tested off-site prior to installation, this plug-and-play solution reduced installation time and costs as well. After it was delivered to the site, it needed only to be attached to a base plate and connected to the turbine, and it was ready to operate.
