Total Train Solution

The Turner-ECS Total Train Solution™ is a controller platform for turbine or motor driven compressor or generator applications developed in Woodward GAP™ language.

The TTS is intended for use on multiple Woodward hardware platforms and offers a mix of standard, configurable and programmable functions for control and visualisation.


The Turner-ECS Total Train Solution™ comprises the following components: 

  • A Woodward GAP™ based standard software application with an embedded dynamic model intended for off-line configuration and validation purposes.
  • A Woodward Toolkit based graphical engineering tool intended for configuration, service and operation, including a dynamic compressor maps and a dynamic steam map.
  • Standard documentation.
  • Engineering services, hardware and HMI visualisation as per project requirements.

Key features and benefits:

  • Developed based on standard field-proven logic.
  • Compliant to most of the standard technical requirements of all major steam turbine and compressor OEM’s, end users and EPC’s.
  • Revision controlled and managed software logic.
  • Including many advanced control features and commissioning tools.
  • Field configurable functionality.
  • Mechanical Performance Monitoring™ for preventive maintenance.
  • Eliminates the need for auxiliary functionality in PLC or DCS systems.
  • Modular software architecture allowing the TTS to be tailored to the needs of the respective application by adding or removing logic blocks.
  • Suitable for simplex, dual redundant and triple modular redundant applications.
  • Reduced development and commissioning time.
Woodward GAP Add-Ins
A solution, called add-ins, has now been developed by Turner ECS which complies with the requirements of conservation of existing functionality while at the same time fulfilling the need of advanced modern interfacing.

For many GAP applications running in the field today it is not possible to display the steam map, surge map or start up curves. In addition, often the alarm annunciation is not compatible with OPC communication meaning descriptions and time stamps are not transferred. Many of these applications are written using older GAP versions and are in need of upgrades.

Even if Turner ECS has modern standard software libraries that could be a perfect solution for these upgrades, most customers are reluctant to modify too deeply their application which has been running for many years without major issues.

That being said, often customers regret not having modern interfacing and visualization tools but consider the risk of upgrading too high, regardless of any guarantees and warranty given.
