Real Time Power

In a typical CCGT plant, a plant operator has to perform hundreds of actions during a start up. For a coal-fired plant, start up requires around five hundred actions.

When operating as a merchant plant, being able to ensure consistently accurate and reliable start ups creates a positive impact from a performance and commercial perspective for both operators and traders alike. Real Time Power’s AirSonic IQ and STARTIM Software will ensure that the MW profile submitted to the Grid will be generated accurately and efficiently.
