  • Patent number: 10301974
    Abstract: An activation control apparatus permits activating a steam turbine safely at high speed in response to a power generation plant state. A heat source apparatus heats low-temperature fluid to generate high-temperature fluid, and steam generation equipment generates steam by thermal exchange with the high-temperature fluid. A steam turbine is driven by the steam, and an adjustment apparatus adjusts a plant operation amount. A thermal effect amount prediction calculation device calculates a prediction value for a thermal effect amount for use for activation control of the steam turbine, and a changeover device decides, based on a state value of the power generation plant, the sensitivity of the thermal effect amount to a variation of the plant operation amount and outputs a changeover signal in accordance with the sensitivity. Based on the changeover signal, an adjustment device calculates the plant operation amount so as not to exceed a predetermined limit value.
