Boiler and Turbine Protection

This unit describes the basic operation and startup requirements of a balanced-draft, controlled circulation, drum-type boiler. It also identifies common problems that affect the combustion side of a boiler and the water and steam side of a boiler, and it describes automatic controls and operator actions that address those problems. The unit goes on to describe common turbine problems, including temperature- and pressure-related problems, overspeed, vibration and eccentricity. Automatic protective devices and operator actions that address those problems are also described.
