Reliable Turbine Controls by Application
HPI specializes in the design of hardware and software systems, manufacturing, testing, installation, commissioning, and support of turbomachinery control systems. By using advanced technologies, HPI provides precise automatic governing, sequencing, and load control for any turbine or engine and its associated load, regardless of manufacturer or application. HPI’s control solutions have been proven to dramatically increase the start availability, reliability, and performance of any train, particularly when compared to old analog relay or hydro-mechanical systems. With extensive diagnostics and communication facilities, HPI’s control systems are flexible to allow for easy interface to existing systems, such as balance of plant (BOP), SCADA, or DCS systems.
HPI provides custom turbine control solutions to satisfy any requirement or application. HPI also has a breadth of experience dating back to the 1960s with various models of gas and steam turbines, generators, compressors, and diesel engines. Complementing HPI’s turbine control solutions are other automation solutions, including complete supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), distributed control systems (DCS), fault tolerant systems, station controls, and emergency shutdown (ESD) systems.
HPI is an innovator of machine control systems and monitoring technology as a turnkey systems integrator and provider of advanced engineered solutions that offer better safety, reliability, and lower life-cycle costs.
