  12. 12. EPAT ApplicationsEPAT ►Industrial Approach Utility Plants of All Industries Refineries and Power Plants Petrochemical Complexes EPAT also can be used in training of industries staffs. www.ripi.ir
  13. 13. EPAT ModulesEPAT Boilers and HRSGs Steam Generator Module provides a heat balance diagram of the steam generator, which determines heat input, heat output, heat losses, heat credits, and overall boiler efficiency based on ASME PTC 4 .0 and 4.4. The efficiencies of the energy conversion and transfer process have direct relation to deterioration due to equipment and operational problems. Early identification of the cause of poor boiler performance allows affective preventative actions. EPAT’s assessments identify potential energy and cost savings. www.ripi.ir
  14. 14. EPAT ModulesEPAT Steam Turbines Steam Turbine Module determines key performance indicators of the turbine that provide plant personnel with a comprehensive picture of the turbine condition. All the calculations for key performance indicators are based on industrial standards (ASME PTC 6s). Component of steam turbines varies corresponding to the design of the plant. Typical components for steam turbine are:  HP turbine LP turbine IP turbine Deaerator Feedwater heater Electrical generator www.ripi.ir
  15. 15. EPAT ModulesEPAT Gas Turbines Performance deteriorates against time is a normal phenomenon for all machines including gas turbines during operation. The deterioration results in loss in power output and increase fuel consumption. The subsequent impacts such as lower production and higher operating costs will effect negatively on company’s revenue and profits. Thus, accurate assessments of the capability and operating conditions of the GT are essential. EPAT provides performance monitoring under varying ambient conditions, based on industrial standards (ASME PTC 22) and Performance Test Reports from Machine Manufacturer. www.ripi.ir
  16. 16. EPAT ModulesEPAT Compressors Studies on turbo machinery’s life cycle costs have shown that energy costs normally far outweigh the procurement, installation, and maintenance costs. This has led to an increased awareness of the values of efficiency, capacity flexibility, and performance analysis and monitoring, in addition to the traditional values for reliability. All the calculations for key performance indicators are based on industrial standards (ISO 5389 and ASME PTC 10), as well as Performance Test Reports from Machine Manufacturer. www.ripi.ir
  17. 17. EPAT ModulesEPAT Other Equipments There are many other equipments which EPAT can assess them. All the calculations for key performance indicators are based on industrial standards. Components of utility cycle vary corresponding to the design of the plant. The other equipment modules of EPAT are: Pump Fan Single Phase Heat Exchanger Condenser Cooling Tower Air Cooler www.ripi.ir
  18. 18. EPAT Client ListEPAT Since 2005, RIPI has offered a comprehensive program for energy cost management proven to result in sustained energy cost reduction by performance monitoring.
