Upgrading turbine water induction systems can be a very cost effective way of ensuring long-term reliability not just with older conventional units, but also combined-cycle plants that have been recognized in the new ASME TDP-1 standard. One significant addition to the ASME standard is the inclusion of guidelines for units with axial exhaust LP turbine and condenser configurations. These relatively new designs require special attention to LP turbine exhaust spray systems and the prevention of inadvertent flows entering the LP turbine from the condenser.
