Pegasus Technologies, a subsidiary of Kfx Inc., and Alstom Power China have been awarded their first neural network combustion optimization project at the Yangliuqing Power Plant in China.
“China is leading the way in Asia. They are taking advantage of the high technology neural net software provided by Pegasus and using it as one of the most cost effective ways of reducing emissions and increasing power plant efficiency,” said Gary Nicholson, CEO of Pegasus.
“This system will help the efficiency of the 300 MW power generation unit, reduce emissions and is expected to increase plant life due to better control of metallurgical stresses,” said Mr. Zou Deya, general manager of the Yangliuqing Power Plant.
The order is for Pegasus’ Power Perfecter(tm) software product. Pegasus and Huaneng Automation Engineering Co., a Huaneng Group company, will provide implementation and contract fulfilment.
Alstom Power China has the largest fleet of foreign manufactured installed equipment in China, whose grid of 300 000 MW is one of the largest in the world.
