Location: Trinidad A


Speakers


Description

This discussion will center on how current and future market trends are changing the operating profile of traditional generation facilities. Many plants are being pressured to operate under conditions that were not part of their original design intent in order to stay economically viable. How is that affecting reliability? What can be done to improve performance and mitigate adverse side effects? This panel will also discuss key focus areas for consideration when upgrading an existing combined cycle plant.
