Balance of Plant Controls


One Platform, One Solution - a comprehensive approach to controls

TTS’ Balance of Plant (BOP) control system solution is a programmable plant control system for new applications or as a replacement for an existing plant controller such as a distributed control system (DCS). Our BOP control system puts the controller, I/O platforms and communications on a common bus sharing all of the plant’s parameters. Typical systems include:

  • Liquid Fuel Treatment/Forwarding/Storage
  • Gas Fuel Compression
  • De-Mineralized Water Treatment
  • Plant Instrument Air
  • Plant Cooling Water Systems
  • Switchgear Interface
  • Fuel Forwarding & Cooling/Treatment

Traditionally, the gas turbine control system was autonomous and connected to the rest of the plant via a communications link. With the advances in communications options, I/O types and the capabilities of programmable controllers, the gas turbine control system can be a fully integrated component in an overall balance of plant control system.

Clients see our work as a pragmatic approach to operational excellence - lowering operational risk. The full suite of benefits includes:

  • Faster commissioning though dedicated control solutions
  • Reduced training costs and improved operator productivity
  • Heightened operator awareness of the plant’s overall operations
  • Improved decision making
  • Reduced programming, system checkout, and start-up hours
  • Better root cause analysis, diagnostics, and overall operational analytics
  • Reduced project risks and integration cost
  • Shorten maintenance outages
  • Reduced productivity losses with more accurate diagnostics
