Reliable operation of once-through steam generators (OTSG) of the continuous-tube type, as used for gas turbine heat recovery, requires tight regulation of final steam temperature, using feedwater flow as the controlled variable. The feedwater flow controller typically utilizes feedforward information concerning gas temperature and flow rate, as well as(More)
In 1994, several Syncrude Canada Ltd. and University of Alberta personnel began the development of a computer simulation model of the Syncrude Utilities steam and electrical plant. Motivation arose out of a concern regarding dynamic stability of the steam header system under upset conditions such as tie line or turbine trips. The model was developed from(More)
