Transient testing during MEA-3 test campaign
The purpose of the project was to analyze the transient (time-dependent) performance of the amine process. NTNU developed and detailed transient test cases based on process simulations using their dynamic process model of the TCM amine plant.
Two test cases were performed:
- Test the performance of decentralized control structures of the TCM amine plant during hypothetical load changes of power plant, by changing the flue gas volumentric flow rate with given ramp rates representing realistic operation; and
- Investigate transient performance of the amine plant by implementing open-loop step changes to key inputs (disturbances) to the plant.
