I am new to the ALSTOM - ALSPA P320 DCS and i can't find any useful documentations !!

does anyone know/have documentation regarding the ALSPA P320???

Posted by JM on 23 March, 2009 - 6:36 am
What kind of plant you have? Before, I worked in Coal Fired Thermal Plant using ALSPA P320 DCS control and ALSTOM generator H2 cooled. Are you using MICROREC turbine control?

Posted by SHR on 24 March, 2009 - 12:49 am
First of all thnx of your reply.
actually the plant is still under construction
it is CCPP - Combined Cycle Power Plant, it has H2 cooling Generator and the steam turbine controller is called in the drawing (TGC)
there is no data for the turbine controller yet.
they call it in the drawing and manuals (STP - TGC.

any documentation or function block manuals, or sample of logic will be alot of help to me

thnx again for your reply

Hi everyone,

Your friendly local moderator here.

> please send me some file ebook about ALSPA P320 <

Just a reminder that the best place to get documentation is from the manufacturer or distributor of a product.

I am looking for P320 technical field support for a new steam turbine unit in Texas. Are any of you aware of any third party field support capable of working on Alstom P320 steam turbine controls in the Texas region?


Posted by Jo on 1 August, 2009 - 2:02 pm

Cottonwood power plant is a combined-cycle power facility. The Cottonwood plant is located approximately two hours due east of Houston, in Deweyville, Texas.

Maybe you can ask them?

There are 4 Steam turbines with P320 Control system. As I remember, there is another one in Jasper also. Or, try to contact Alstom Power.

hi Jo,

I would like to get in contact with you about that ALSPA P320. it is concerning a up coming project.


Posted by Rich Wargo, P.E. on 6 August, 2009 - 10:49 am
What ever happened to calling the vendor and requesting literature?

Posted by Jo on 6 August, 2009 - 4:48 pm
Hi MadMax (Mario),

Get in contact ? Why not. I was working with Alspa P320 (step 4 & 5) from 2001 to 2007 DCS and TGC. I think they have changed to Step 6, I mean changed some technologies.

Can you tell me more about this up coming project? Country, DCS or TGC, both...

and what about presentations of the system itself. I'm very interested to learn about the system and its possibilities. I'm familiar with Siemens, ABB and Emerson DCS but know nothing about Alstom.
Is it possible to get some system overview or something similar?
