502-1985 - IEEE Guide for Protection, Interlocking, and Control of Fossil-Fueled Unit-Connected Steam Stations
Information regarding the essential subsystems that make up a fossil-fueled unit-connected boiler-turbine-generator (BTG) station is presented. Typical interlocking, control, and protection for operating the subsystems in a coordinated order to ensure proper startup and safe shutdown are described. The primary purpose is to provide a basis for qualitative evaluation of overall design of a unit-connected fossil-fuel plant, and for writing general operating guides of an educational nature to aid in acquainting personnel with boiler-turbine-generator systems.
Revision of IEEE Std 1050-1996 Instrumentation and control (I&C) equipment grounding methods to achieve both a suitable level of protection for personnel and equipment, and suitable electric noise immunity for signal ground references in generating stations are identified.
