Steam Turbine

Woodward offers steam turbine controllers for all size turbines and applications. Standard off-the-shelf field configurable controllers allow users with simple steam turbine applications to easily configure and operate the control themselves—resulting in lowering commissioning and support costs. Depending on the application’s complexity and level of criticality, Woodward also offers custom programmable control platforms in simplex, dual redundant, or triple redundant configurations enabling customers to match the required control reliability and availability levels to their application. Fully programmable control platforms allow turbine OEMs and end-users to create a custom controller with site specific algorithms, logic, and protection functionality as required by the application. 

Woodward also offers different sizes of steam turbine valve actuators and turbine overspeed detection systems (ODS) for selection and application by both OEMs and end-users. These versatile product families allow entire plants/companies to use and standardize on one actuator family or ODS family across their plants, lowering associated spare parts and personnel training costs.
