NOVA Corporation of Alberta has developed a programmable logic controller based gas turbine fuel control system for natural gas compressor set applications. The system carries out all necessary fuel control functions and was integrated into the existing programmable logic controller used for sequencing and shutdown. The system has been successfully implemented on several different aero derivative gas turbines to date. This paper discusses the development of the system, its performance and advantages over standalone hardware-based fuel control systems typically used in the application.
