What is Speedtronic Mark V Control System?

Gas turbine theory isn’t new to the world; truth be told, Leonardo Da Vinci created a reaction-type turbine. While not similar to the turbines of today, Da Vinci’s smokestack jack’ utilized hot air ascending from a hearth to turn an axial rotor appended to a roasting spit situated over the fire. This way, food on the spit turned without the need for a helper, tackling the force of burning gases.

The Speedtronic Mark V Gas Turbine Control System is the most recent subordinate in the exceptionally effective Speedtronic series. Proceeding systems were depended on automatic turbine control, sequencing, and protecting methods tracing all the way back to the late 1940s, and have developed and created with accessible technology. Execution of electronic turbine control, sequencing, and protecting started with the Mark I system in 1968. The Mark V system is a digital execution of the turbine mechanization strategies learned and refined in around 40 years of successful experience, more than 80% of which has experienced the utilization of electronic GE industrial controls technology.

What is Mark V Control System?

Mark V control system has been designed to satisfy the needs of the gas turbine control. These incorporate control of fluid, gas, or the two fuels as per the necessities of the speed, load control under part-load conditions, temperature control under maximum capability conditions, or during startup conditions.

Speedtronic Mark V control gives interfaces to DCS systems to establish control from the <I> processor. The two interfaces accessible are Modbus Slave Station and a standard ethernet connection, which agrees with the IEEE-802.3 determination for the physical and medium access control (MAC) layers.

Operator interface to the Mark V could be set up with an <I> Interface Data processor that comprised of a printer, mouse, keyboard, or different other systems that could be accessed through HMIs (human-machine interface.) The operator interface is normally set up to deal with any communication with external or remote devices that may be essential.

Note that–much of the time HMIs and I/O are associated for information gathering and troubleshooting instead of control purposes.
