The 505 controller is purpose built to provide exemplary operation and protection of your industrial steam turbines. This user-configurable steam turbine controller includes specifically designed screens, algorithms, and event recorders to simplify use in controlling industrial steam turbines or turbo-expanders, driving generators, compressors, pumps, or industrial fans.
Control Panel (OCP)
The 505 controller's user-friendly OCP allows
plant operators to easily start and stop the turbine as well as enable/disable
all control modes. The controller's multi-lingual 8.4-inch (20 cm) graphical
display allows operators to view actual and setpoint values from the same
screen, simplifying turbine operation in their own language. Functioning like a
window into the turbine and its driven equipment, the 505's front panel allows
users to monitor and control all modes of operation, verify dynamic response
via real-time trending screens, and understand the turbine's performance
capabilities through a real-time plotted steam performance map (extraction or
admission steam turbines only).
The base 505
model is designed for simple single valve steam turbine applications where
basic turbine control, protection, and monitoring are required. The 505
controller's integrated OCP, overspeed protection, and trip events recorder
make it ideal for small steam turbine applications where overall system cost
is a concern.
The 505XT model is designed for more complex single
valve, single extraction or single admission steam turbine applications where
more analog or discrete I/O (inputs and outputs) are required.
Simplified System Upgrades
Modernizing your aging technology
to a better solution that will optimize performance and productivity has
never been easier! Our new 505 and 505XT are direct drop-in replacements
(form, fit and function) to your existing 505 systems.
Woodward's new OptiTune PID technology analyzes
through an "auto-tune" function the steam turbine's dynamic system response
and then calculates the optimum P, I, and D settings. No longer do you have
to depend on inadequately trained engineering teams to dynamically adjust
your turbine system control loops for optimum operation and performance.
