In 2004-2005, at Thermal Power Station-6, at the boiler units №3 and №1, the team of TPS-6 developed and successfully started up the system of emergency regulation of BKZ-320-140 PT boiler on the basis of multipurpose MFK controller of the Russian Group of TEKON Company with the use of software products of InSaT Company. The introduced system allowed to realize automated management by the equipment of the boiler unit with keeping of the set-up parameters; complex algorithms of control and management; provision of the operator with dataware; conducting of the archive and its key parameters viewing within the specified time interval; support of reports of information interchange with networks of top level; continuous diagnostics of the equipment and self-diagnostics.
Additional surfaces of heating were installed on these boiler units that allowed to increase efficiency factor approximately by 0.7 %.
In October 2005, 620 SVNL 33 G adjusting hydraulic hutch was mounted on the make-up pump of st. N 2 made by Foit-Turbo Company (Germany). Decrease in specific expenses by 0.8 kWh³ is expected.
On 5.11.2005 the system of the commercial account of electric power was introduced into pre-production operation of TPS-6. This system allows to calculate produced and consumed energy, and also to carry out information interchange between Thermal Power Station-6 and Irkutskenergo Information Department. That, in its turn, will allow to organize the centralized control over and management by the electric power generated by Thermal Power Station-6.
