Purpose-built for steam turbines, Woodward’s powerful controllers have the performance,  accuracy, reliability and protection required for today’s steam turbine applications and enhance productivity and safety.

Steam turbine controls

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.

Steam turbine actuation

Built to handle steam turbine users’ #1 reliability problem — dirty oil — the new Woodward CPC-II features a robust design and self-cleaning action that increases reliability. The superb accuracy and resolution of this servo positioner make it ideal for improving steam turbine valve control performance.

The patented dirt tolerant and self-cleaning technology of Woodward’s simplex and dual-redundant on-line serviceable actuators ensure greater overall reliability of your steam turbine.

Steam turbine safety and protection

Machinery Protection Standard API670 requires compressor safety systems be used on axial compressors and centrifugal compressors based on application criticality. Woodward is a leader in delivering safety systems for industrial turbomachinery that allow users to meet this standard.

Woodward’s SIL-3 certifiable safety systems reduce installation costs and allow users to meet today’s safety system requirements for small, medium, or large compressor applications.

Speed sensors

Rotating machinery requires speed sensing for rotor control, monitoring, and safety. 

For industrial applications, it is recommended that standard API670 be referenced, as it includes application guidelines for speed sensors applied on rotating machinery, including steam turbines, gas turbines, turbo expanders, and variable-frequency drives. Compliance to functional safety standard IEC61508 is increasingly required in new and retrofit systems. 

These speed sensors are designed for use in SIL-3, SIL-2, or SIL-1 (safety integrity level) rated turbine or engine safety systems.
