TurboWatch provides a whole set of specialized data visualization tools that can be customized to create highly sophisticated displays. The highly flexible HMI software allows easy point and click graphical navigation through monitored equipment displaying real-time data and equipment status. The powerful charting tools help in technical analysis of collected historical data with extensive capabilities to customize the professional quality graphs and share plots and data with other windows applications.
This application provides a graphical interface to all processes and machinery. In addition to displaying real-time data the console application also servers as a graphical navigational tool that provides a quick overview and rapid access to plant areas/parameters of interest. Configuration and personalization options allow users complete control over what is displayed and how. In addition, users can have private panels for their own use only or to share with selected users. Other TW display programs or any other windows applications can be launched from within this application.
This module combines many features for plotting historical time series data and X-Y plots. It also has advanced features for filtering plotted data based on user defined criteria. Also included are many scientific plotting features such as curve fitting, linear and logarithmic axes, zooming etc. The graphs can be easily pasted in other windows applications and can also be saved to file as live plots that can be viewed using the TurboWatch Graphics Viewer utility.
Exhaust Gas Plots
The Turbine Exhaust Gas Temperature Plots with temperature spreads are a key analysis tool useful in identifying gas turbine hot section problems such as nozzle blockages and distortions. User can view real-time data or scroll through historical steady state and transient data captured during a startup, shutdown or trip.
This is a powerful tool for viewing process data overlaid on top of guaranteed or as tested performance curves provided by the manufacturer or obtained from the latest performance tests. This gives an instant assessment of the health of the machines and also provides easy visualization of operating regimes and deviations from expected behaviour.
This utility allows the user to view historical data for parameters of choice in the form of a histogram bar plot. This helps in visualizing operating trends and deviations from normal operating practices.
The text report utility includes several different formats and allows export of data to other applications such as
spreadsheet and word processing programs. The report utility can also import and display data from other OPC HDA compatible systems. Besides data reports, program also displays alarm, event and system error logs.
