COLD START UP
(With Aux Ste am available )
A cold start up is by definition, one of which the maximum of HP casing and HP shaft is less than 150
0
C. This
normally means that the unit is shut down from the maximum load for more than five days. If machine is
started from ambient temperature (HPC/HP shaft temp approx. 40
0
C), heating up of casting is required. This
is accomplished by soaking the machine at 360 rpm at warming up steam parameters (40kg/cm
2
, 360
0
C), till
the TSE margin are satisfactory.
The rifle construction of the water wall combined with the boiler circulating water pumps permits very
high rate of pressure rising of boiler. An upper limit of 200
0
C/hr saturation temperature gradient can be
allowed, i.e. approximately the boiler pressure can be brought to 20 kg/cm
2
within an hour of cold start up.
But actual temperature gradient is limited by the thick walled Y piece provided in the main steam and HRH
lines. A main steam line heating is to be started as early as possible (at approx. 4 kg/cm
2
) as maximum
differential temperature allowed between inner (98%) and mid wall temperature (50%) is ± 40
0
C. So boiler
loading is accordingly regulated. It may be preferably to start only two CC pumps in order to minimise flashing
in down comers (and subsequent vibration) when the boiler water is in range of 85
0
C to 125
0
C. The third
pump should be started before drum pressure reaches 7 kg/cm
2
to minimise the temperature transients
experienced by the pump casing (this is to avoid fast load out back on the boiler in the event of any CC pump
tripping).
To get the rolling parameters, normally two elevation oil guns are taken with approx. 70 to 80t/hr
flow through HP-LP bypass. At that time M.S. parameters would be 40 kg/cm
2
and 360
0
C, HRH parameters
would be 12 kg/cm
2
and 360
0
C.
As soon as the turbine loading has started, HP/LP bypass closes and gets completely closed as the turbine
reaches the boiler load. First mill is put into operation around 10% of generator load. Second mill is put into
operation around 25% while third mill is at 40% of generator load. Fourth and fifth mills are put into operation
at 60% and 80% of generator load respectively. Sixth mill is taken to reach full generator load.
During loading the RH outlet steam temperature has to be kept as close as possible to SH outlet steam
temperature Burner tilt, SH spray, RH spray controls has to be adjusted accordingly. The turbine-loading rate
is decided by a selection circuit which compares the external load gradient, TSE margin and time dependant
gradient (set internally) and frequency influence.

WARM AND HOT START UPS
(With Aux. Steam Available).
A warm start up is, by definition, one which the maximum of HP casing/HP shaft temperature is
between 150
0
C and 350
0
C. This normally means that the unit is shut down from the maximum load for one to
four days. Depending upon the absolute temperature of HP casing and HP shaft, steam parameters are
derived. A hot start up is by definition one which the maximum of HP casing/shaft temperature is more than
350
0
C. In this case to get the rolling parameters two mills are taken into service keeping HP, LP by pass in
operation. (Again the flow rate is restricted by the ‘Y’ pieces constraints i.e., ± 40
0
C). In both the cases,
curves are given to derive the rolling parameters. In case when machine is rolled through EAST, curve
generators, calculate and give permissive for rolling.
