3.0. I/O Checks

3.1 Verify the Master Protective Circuits


The Master Protective Circuits provide a means of tripping the gas turbine by shutting off fuel
flow. These circuits use relays in various combinations to cause the fuel stop valves to close in
the event of an emergency. The Master Protective Circuits are shown in the Turbine Controller
drawings.

Procedure

Title Gas Turbine Generator Commissioning Procedure

Test the „Fail-Safe Solenoids‟


The term „fail-safe solenoid‟ describes any solenoid that is required to be independently de-
energized in the event the unit is to be tripped. A fail-safe solenoid can be identified by the
presence of master protective relay contacts in its circuit. Because these solenoids are hardwired
to master protective relay normally open contacts it will ensure that the fail-safe solenoid will be
de-energized when a trip signal is received. During normal unit operation, a fail-safe solenoid is
normally energized and de-energized by an interposing relay that is operated by a PLC output.

Check Completed
Record data
Completed by / date
Reference the „Solenoid sheets‟ of the Turbine
Controller drawing. Force the logic to energize the
solenoids listed below. Verify the solenoid is

3.2. Discrete Input Checks


Discrete or Digital Inputs: Discrete inputs are listed in the IO list.

The preferred method to check the integrity of discrete inputs is to simulate the process condition
operating the field device, for example, by applying process pressure to a pressure switch.
Toggling the actual device is the next best method. Jumpering or removing wires is also
acceptable where simulation or toggling is not possible. When jumpering, always jumper at the
field device.

Each input should be verified to the PLC, HMI screen and/or alarm per the IO list.

Verify that the field device is in its proper state per the IO list. If not, set device to proper state
and correct the software, I/O list or drawing as required. Verify description is correct.

Check Completed
Record data
Completed by / date
Verify that all discrete inputs are connected at the
panel per the Turbine Controller drawing.

Check for grounds on field wiring. If a ground is


found, isolate field circuits to locate ground.

Apply power to the discrete input circuits by


closing the appropriate circuit breaker or inserting
the required fuse (refer to Turbine Controller
drawing).

NOTE ANY DEVICE STATE CHANGES:

displayed value for the device corresponds to the value
of the signal, +/- 5.0% of span. For instance, a 4-
20mA signal which is expected to display a value of 0 -
200 psig, must be within 10 psi of expected value (200
x .05 = 10).

Verify sections in the IO list. If not correct, make

3.6. Discrete Output Checks


Verify that all discrete outputs and any field devices driven by these outputs are connected at the
control panel per the Turbine Controller drawing. Contacts being driven by discrete outputs may
be „wet‟ with power supplied by the ICS system or may be „dry‟ with power being supplied from
another source. Refer to the Turbine Controller drawing.

Some discrete outputs may drive Motor Control Center devices. Verify that all Motor Control
Center circuits are locked out or safe to operate. MCC function checks are done in section 3.9.

Use the following procedures as a guide and verify each discrete output in the IO list.

drawing as a guide, toggle each PLC discrete
output. Verify that the field device controlled by
the relay changes state as the PLC output is
toggled. For certain solenoids, the Master
Protective Circuit must be energized; see the
Master Protective Circuit checks.

If it is not possible to verify a change in the field


device, use a multimeter at the field device
interface point to verify a change in the circuit.

Verify that the relay contacts are in the proper de-


energized state, e.g., the NC contacts are closed
when the relay is de-energized.

4.0 System Checks


4.1 Electro-hydraulic actuator Tests
Application: This section provides instructions for calibration of an electro-hydraulic actuator
with servo valve and LVDT/RVDT position feedback.
(Check box if this section is not applicable for this commissioning)

Feedback Calibration
For each device listed on the Electro-hydraulic Actuator Calibration Table below, perform the
following steps:
 Position feedback (LVDT/RVDT) calibration
 Actuator Stroke Test
Ensure that the fuel supply is mechanically isolated from the turbine fuel system by
something other than the gas turbine controller.
A Signal conditioner is used to convert the LVDT feedback from the actuator to a 4-20 mA signal
for the turbine controller. The purpose of these checks is to calibrate the signal conditioner so
that the LVDT feedback accurately represents actuator position. This requires driving the actuator
against its „closed end‟ mechanical stop and adjusting the signal conditioner, then driving the
actuator against its „open end‟ mechanical stop and adjusting the signal conditioner and repeating
the procedure until fully closed and fully open consistently yields values as close to 20 and 4 mA
as possible.
This procedure requires an HMI access level of maintenance or higher.

Check Completed by
Record data
Completed / date
Reference the relevant sheet of the controller
drawing. Install an ammeter in series between the
actuator LVDT signal conditioner and the controller
analog input card.

Install a mechanical indication device (dial indicator,


protractor, etc) to show the actual mechanical travel
of the actuator.

Ensure that hydraulic oil pressure is available. If


required, the hydraulic trip circuit will be enabled
when the test is enabled.

From the Maintenance Menu of the HMI, access the


relevant Test display for the valve / actuator; this
requires at least a maintenance level password.

Enable the actuator Servo Test.

Select „Enter Output To actuator Servo Coils‟ and


enter a value (+ or – Vdc) that will move the
actuator to the open position.

With the actuator fully open, adjust the „zero‟ on the


signal conditioner to yield a 4.00 mA feedback
output signal to the turbine controller.

Select „Toggle Voltage Sign‟. This should change


the output to the servo coil move the actuator to
the closed end stop.

With the actuator fully closed, adjust the „span‟ on


the signal conditioner to yield a 20.00 mA feedback
output signal to the turbine controller.

Continue back and forth from fully closed to fully


open, adjusting the span and zero to get as close to
20.00 mA and 4.00 mA as possible.

Record the data in the LVDT calibration section of


the table below.

Application: This document provides instructions for performing Manual Synchronization, and
applies units regardless of the Exciter/Voltage Regulator applied.

PHASE ROTATION CHECKS


Required Tools: Voltmeter rated for generator terminal voltage, high voltage gloves, face shield
and ground mat.

A full voltage test with “hot sticks” across like phases is highly recommended.
A full voltage rotation test consists of utilizing a voltmeter rated for the voltage of the generator.
The following is a short procedure that should be carried out by qualified personnel
only.
Ensure that the breaker is racked out and in the test position before performing
checks.
Locate a high voltage test stick for checking the voltage difference (hence phase angle) between
the Bus and Generator Phase A, then B and then C. Only persons with proper training should
attempt this procedure.
