Steam turbines / Gas turbines / Water turbines
The power generation industry demands particularly high levels of safety and protection, in particular with regard to the overspeed protection of turbines.
Since downtime is a critical cost factor, power plant turbines should only be turned off when absolutely necessary. On the other hand, it must be possible to shut down the turbine if required, to prevent harm to man and machine. And this is precisely where our protection systems prove their worth.
BRAUN protection systems monitor such plants and guarantee the smooth operation of safety-critical applications including rotating parts, as in a case of power generation. An implementation may be made in compliance with SIL3 certification.
