Excel tool Makes your life easy !!
GEC has completed 70% of the application engineering
for a combined cycle project , suddenly the front office
came up with the updated data base. GEC lead was not
aware of the changes made in the data base so he
cleaned the system & imported the latest data base along
with the internal data base . But after importing this the
controller is not loading !!!!

Before sending the data base file to front office we have
selected GEC created points using DBID. We have used
APC in HRSG sequencer, we had tested the same at
GEC server, and subsequently we have submitted the
same to PGH office. After two weeks the front office
commented that they could not see the device description
in the sequencer sheets.

HRSG 01 FAT got over successfully, GEC was asked to
duplicate the logic/Graphic/Data base for HRSG02 in two
days. We had successfully complete the same by running
map file. But while testing we found the window generator
algo names were not get updated, so we changed them
manually by adding few resources.

During Loop checking our field engineer found some


mismatch in the thermocouple reading of the feed water
temperatures.
