GenOn Energy is using a AVEVA plant simulation solution to train power station operators, as well as to improve operating procedures and process efficiencies.
- GenOn Energy needed to develop a training program to enable the easy transfer of technical knowledge and real-world experience from veteran power plant operators to new trainees in the shortest possible time period
- The company required a training solution that could deliver a high-fidelity model of the Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) waste coal-fired combustion process
- Seward Generating Station management had to overcome initial skepticism from veteran operators that a computer simulator solution could replicate the intricacies and nuances of running an advanced technology waste coalfired power station
- New equipment and upgrades required the testing of alternative procedures and processes, which needed to be conducted without impacting live plant operations
- The simulator is successfully being used to qualify new trainees and simulation training has standardized responses to specific problem or error conditions
- All control changes are first made and tested on the simulator before implementing in the plant, improving operational efficiencies and adding higher levels of confidence to control room management
